eBook Access

On June 30, 2018 access to the Commonwealth eBook Collection (Axis 360, Biblioboard, eBook Central) ended. The program transitioned to a shared OverDrive platform led by the Massachusetts library networks. As networks join their content becomes available to share with other Massachusetts library patrons. Currently, CLAMS, CW MARS, Minuteman, NOBLE, OCLN and SAILS library networks are participating.
OverDrive RLA allows CW MARS public library cardholders access to OverDrive resources at the other Massachusetts Networks. Patrons are able to search the other network collections and place holds just as they do on CW MARS content.

There are three main ways to access OverDrive RLA content:

  • the Libby app
  • the OverDrive app
  • the OverDrive website

Click on name of another network to be taken to their OverDrive Collection. The direct links are:
