The Academy

learning, culture, research

With roots traced back to Plato’s school of philosophy founded in 385 BC in Akademia, Greece, an academy is a place of higher learning, scholarship, and research. Central to any institution of higher learning is its academic library, which imparts cultural and historical knowledge through generations and supports new discovery and innovation. This aligns with OverDrive’s vision: “To educate and entertain by providing the world’s favorite way to access the best collection of premium digital content.”
