If you are a user of our state-wide Commonwealth eBook Collections, read on for the breaking news from our CLAMS main office:
Following a procurement process in 2017, Commonwealth eBook Collections has selected OverDrive as its new eBook platform. OverDrive replaces Axis 360.  90% of the Axis 360 content will move to the new OverDrive service. Biblioboard, and eBook Central will no longer be offered.
This service will no longer be available to CLAMS patrons as of July 1.
IMPORTANT: If you place a hold or check out a title from Commonwealth eBook Collections (e.g. Axis 360) it will disappear from your device on July 1, 2018.  Please use the CLAMS OverDrive eBook service clamsnet.overdrive.com instead.
COMING SOON: CLAMS will soon participate in an exciting Massachusetts pilot program tentatively called the “Reciprocal Lending Arrangement (RLA)” for eBooks and will allow you to borrow OverDrive material from several other Massachusetts library consortia and from the new Commonwealth eBook [OverDrive] Collection mentioned above. Stay tuned for updates!
If you have any questions about using our digital collections through OverDrive, please don’t hesitate to ask a librarian! You can also check out OverDrive’s extensive Help page.
