OD AdvantageOverDrive Advantage (OA) gives libraries that are members of a shared collection (LUV) the ability to offer titles exclusively for their patrons. OA libraries can purchase additional titles, or titles that are not available in the shared collection. These titles are only available to the patrons of the library that purchased them. The OA enrollment fee (payable to OA) is $1,000 USD. 100% of the enrollment fee is available to be used for content.

In consideration of GMLC providing the platform and technical support each OA library is charged a yearly fee of $250. This fee will be waived if the library donates at least 10 hours/year of volunteer time. GMLC board will need to approve this donation in advance of billing. Please contact GMLC Billing with any questions or for approval.
