Idaho Digital E-Book Alliance (IDEA)
A state-wide partnership among the Idaho Commission for Libraries (ICfL), public libraries, and school libraries with the goal of expanding access while reducing barriers to digital e-books and e-audio content via OverDrive.
In 2020, in the midst of the COVID19 pandemic and in response to the growing need for electronic materials, the ICfL embarked on a quest to find a way to supplement e-book and e-audio materials already available in public and school libraries. The goal of ICfL was to supplement the existing online collections of public and school libraries and provide more reading materials for school-aged students. The ICfL is committed to supporting student learning and therefore is initially dedicating 75% of the IDEA collection to children, juvenile, and teen titles.
