[aisle] SORA and Public Library Connect

I just connected our collections about a week ago (they are backlogged, so
it took a while). However, we were already using Sora, so they just had to
allow our students to access the public library collection. I am not sure
how it works if you don't have Sora (Overdrive). The public library
collection is only available in Sora and students cannot see it in our
catalog in Destiny. I would reach out to your public library. It was well
received by ours. There are applications that need to be filled out by them
and by you to make it happen.

You also might want to try buying into the RAILS Consortium ebook
collection. For information on that, you can go here:
https://ereadillinois.com/join. It is a great, low cost way to expand your
electronic collection.
