INWOOD, W.Va. (Jan. 21, 2013) – The Library Corporation has successfully integrated the released set of OverDrive API services into its public catalog. The functionality will be available to any existing or new TLC library using the LS2 PAC.
"Our libraries have told us that they must be able to search and view e-resources along with their physical collection in one public catalog interface," said Dianne Coan, LS2 PAC Product Owner.
"Most of our customers already use OverDrive services, and this integration will make it easier for their patrons to see their investment in these titles without having to look in a separate place or make a separate search."
The released functionality shows the user the OverDrive item status, as well as an indication of item popularity, by showing the current OverDrive holds queue within the catalog result list. OverDrive is expected to release a second set of APIs to provide more access to its service in 2013.
