Idaho public libraries with existing OverDrive access can gain access to and borrow items from the IDEA collection through a Reciprocal Lending Agreement (RLA). There is no additional cost to all parties. This reciprocity allows patrons of each library/consortium access to all OverDrive collections in the alliance. Each library/consortium can choose which lending models they wish to include in the reciprocity. The only required lending model to be shared with others in the alliance is one copy/one user (OC/OU). Any of the four metered access (MA) options can be included or excluded. Simultaneous use and titles purchased under Advantage plans are never shared. Libraries/Consortia may prioritize holds for their patrons ensuring they receive items before other alliance patrons.
