Wisconsin's Digital Library is a shared, state-wide collection of ebooks, audiobooks and streaming video available for free to all Wisconsin public library card holders. It includes the OverDrive and Libby platform and prior to 3/31/2020, it included the BiblioBoard platform. BiblioBoard, ebooks from self-published authors including indie titles specifically from Wisconsin authors were discontinued at that time. Staff should note that no BiblioBoard MARC records were in CountyCat. They were always available via that online platform only. Also discontinued in March 2020, was the WPLC-supported Wisconsin Author Project, an annual, ebook writing contest with winning titles put on BiblioBoard.

OverDrive and Libby provide access for library patrons to ebooks and audiobook.  The desktop web site Wisconsin's Digital Library is a great way to browse and access titles although you can do so with the Libby or OverDrive apps as well.
