Commonwealth eBook Collections is Evolving

Commonwealth eBook Collections is evolving! 

Following a procurement process in 2017, Commonwealth eBook Collections has selected OverDrive as its new eBook platform. OverDrive replaces Axis 360.  90% of the Axis 360 content will move to the new OverDrive service.  Biblioboard, and eBook Central will no longer be offered.

UPDATE 7/23/2018 
CLAMS is now participating in an exciting Massachusetts pilot program tentatively called the “Recipricol Lending Arrangement (RLA)” for eBooks which allows you to borrow OverDrive material from several other Massachusetts library consortia and from the new Commonwealth eBook [OverDrive] Collection mentioned above.


This service will no longer be available to CLAMS patrons as of July 1.

IMPORTANT: If you place a hold or check out a title from Commonwealth eBook Collections (e.g. Axis 360) it will disappear from your device on July 1, 2018.  Please use the CLAMS OverDrive eBook service instead.
