OverDrive:  ESU 10 is excited to inform you about our most recent purchase of OverDrive K-12 eBook Library. We have joined a statewide collection for eBooks which now provides thousands of titles of eBooks and Audiobooks for all grade levels. This access to the Nebraska Schools Shared Digital Collection is being provide free of charge as part of our service to all school as required by state statue.

The only requirement to use the collection is to also use the statewide federation of Identity Management system often referred to as Single-Sign On. Most school have already setup this SSO which enables one account to access multiple services with simplified account management within one directory within the school.

Student access to this library is best experienced using the website www.soraapp.com or the Sora App on mobile devices.

OverDrive SDL Advantage

Custom collections for your school within the shared district collection website. OverDrive SDL Advantage is a program that enables members of SDL shared collections to add a custom collection exclusively for their students. These individual schools, upon enrolling in OverDrive SDL Advantage, may purchase digital titles in formats that their shared collection supports (e.g., audiobooks, eBooks, music and/or video) and make them available to their students within their shared collection’s OverDrive-powered “virtual locker” website. 

Benefits. SDL Advantage member schools may reduce waiting lists by purchasing additional copies of popular titles and making them available only to their students. SDL Advantage members may also create custom collections by purchasing titles that are not in the shared district collection but are of interest to their students. The SDL Advantage member library’s titles will appear on the same OverDrive-powered website their students have always used, eliminating the need for additional URLs and links. 

SDL Advantage Titles and Materials. All material purchased by participating SDL Advantage school are for the exclusive use of the SDL Advantage school students. SDL Advantage materials will not be visible to other district school members. SDL Advantage school students will be asked to sign into their accounts in order to see the additional titles and to check out Advantage material.
