What's In OverDrive?


eBooks to support COM students and courses offered at the College as well as leisure fiction. There is a large collection of literature with an emphasis on 20th and 21st century authors as well as smaller special collections on family, relationships, health, life after military, self-improvement, history and succeeding in college.

We expect this initial collection to grow in the future to meet the needs of our community.
