      Sorry to be so tardy with my reply. We don’t subscribe to the Overdrive collection, but if we did, this would be a real problem for us. Having said that, the ebook collections that we do subscribe to, have annual subscriptions, so I guess that is the same thing. Many of these titles would have fewer than 26 uses per year, and yet we pay for them again the following year.Makes me wonder about the purchase models for ebooks offered to libraries.
