Published

(Denver, CO) June 18, 2015:

Odilo’s global reach and rapid expansion in the United States continues to attract publishers from around the world. Just six months after launching their innovative eBook lending library, Odilo now offers digital content from all of the leading publishers, including frontlist and backlist titles, along with pre-orders.

With the addition of Hachette Book Group, HarperCollins Publishers, Macmillan, Penguin Random House, and Simon & Schuster, Odilo customers can easily choose from over 200,000 bestselling and popular titles, from over 550 publishers, in order to meet the needs and demands of their library patrons. Competitive pricing allows Odilo customers to use their savings for other essential library needs.

Odilo products and services allow libraries to better manage digital content, integrate a mix of content sources, and distribute high-quality content to patrons in mere seconds; three clicks and they are reading a book. Unlike other expensive content management systems, Odilo offers flexible and affordable pricing, along with bestselling books in a variety of languages. With their strong international presence, especially in Spain and Latin America, high quality English and Spanish titles are an essential piece of the Odilo lending catalog.

Odilo is dedicated to providing an open ecosystem where libraries can buy books from Odilo, along with publishers and digital content providers of their choice (with no technical restrictions). eBooks are compatible with numerous devices, including Android devices, eReaders (Kobo, SONY, and NOOK), iPads, iPhones, iPod Touch, Kindle Tablets, Macs, NOOK Tablets, PCs, and Smartphones. In addition, while the digital content and publisher relations continues to grow, the Odilo system provides helpful collection management tools, such as statistic and analytic reports.

Library patrons can also enjoy titles from these leading publishers through the new Odilo BookClub, an interactive and engaging literary experience online. Patrons easily subscribe to different book club genres, instantly share their favorite highlighted passages, comment on moderator-led discussion points, along with direct access to the current title being read. BookClubs can be administered and moderated by library staff or patrons (with proper authentication by library staff).
