Q. Why don't you have eAudiobooks on hoopla? Other libraries do.
I've used hoopla at another library and they had eAudiobooks. Why don't you?
hoopla is a bit different from other eResources in that, when a user checks out an item, the library is charged for that item. This is an exciting model, because it means that we are only charged for what people use! It also means that, as more and more people use Hoopla, the price to the library goes up.
hoopla offers a huge selection of eBooks, eComics, and streaming and downloadable video and music. These are unique collections that we're excited to share. We already have robust eAudiobook collections at RBdigital and OverDrive, so we chose to limit our hoopla collection to the materials we think are really stellar.
