Koha now integrates Overdrive into Opac

Koha now integrates Overdrive into Opac

Interleaf Technology Ltd


The Koha Open Source Library Management System now integrates results from eBooks into the Opac search results. When you click on the Overdrive link you will be taken to the library's Overdrive page and be able to checkout the item or place a hold. You will also get to see the Overdrive book covers and enhanced content for the title.

This tight integration between Koha and Overdrive is a great example of several libraries partnering to fast track development of an enhancement in Koha. Open Source users do not have to wait for a proprietary supplier to decide when they will release new functionality. Users can get together and fund an enhancement and spread the cost.

Interleaf have implemented the Overdrive integration into our demo Koha server so that you can try out the feature yourself at
