Permission required: Curate

In the Curate section of OverDrive Marketplace, you can build automated and curated collections of digital titles that you own, and then publish those collections to your library or school's OverDrive website.

Automated and curated collections are a great way to showcase the kinds of content offered in your digital collection, and to boost circulations for highlighted titles.

General tips for creating collections

  • For the best appearance on your OverDrive website, we recommend that collections contain at least 12 titles and no more than 200 titles. The exception is the first collection on your home page, which can have only one title if you'd like that title to be featured by itself at the top of your site.
    Note: Collections with fewer than three titles will not appear on your OverDrive website unless they are published to the first collection on your homepage.
  • Make sure collections have descriptive, eye-catching names.
  • Each collection's description should be brief and should complement the collection name. Users will only see the collection description when they view the full collection, so the name should draw them in.
  • Collections should highlight the variety of formats and subjects your library has to offer, and help your users find their next read faster.
