What is this record in LINKcat?

Ever have a patron ask you what a record like this in LINKcat is for?  Can everyone at your library answer this question?  (click on image to enlarge)

It's a record for a downloadable OverDrive title available through WPLC's Digital Download Center!

What is WPLC?
WPLC is the Wisconsin Public Library Consortium. The WPLC pools the resources of WPLC member libraries throughout the state to cooperatively undertake projects that may otherwise be unavailable to single libraries and library systems. One of these cooperative projects is a state-wide subscription to OverDrive. 

What is OverDrive?
OverDrive is the vendor that supplies titles for the Digital Download Center, a collection of digital audiobooks, eBooks, video and music. The Digital Download Center is supported and funded by the Wisconsin Public Library Consortium (WPLC).

Why is it great?
It means you can watch/listen to/read materials on your PC, laptop, or portable devices!  Many titles are iPod/iPad/iPhone-compatible, and mobile apps are available for Apple, Android, BlackBerry, and Windows mobile devices.

Where can I find more information on using the service?
