    Hi Sandra.

    This is such a fantastic idea! It’s so wonderful seeing how libraries around the world are modernising and it’s fascinating how some of these newer technologies are being implemented.

    For example, I noticed that the National Library of Australia is creating a massive catalogue of eBooks and websites and blogs that are related to Australian life by inviting people to make submissions. I’ve also seen this a lot in the United States.

    We have a huge guide on how to make an eBook here which a lot of authors and budding writers use. I’m thinking about adding a list of libraries where they can submit their work as an additional resource once the work is published.

    Anyway. Enjoying the blog here!

    Is it possible to make requests for specific books/authors to be made available in OverDrive?
