Overdrive has just announced that they will be releasing 3000 or so titles in MP3 format, minus DRM, thus compatible with the Apple iPOD. Library Journal has the details:

This is a BIG, can I say HUGE change for libraries, since up until now, downloadable audiobooks from library vendors have all been in WMA (Windows Media Audio) format, which is NOT compatible with iPODs, much to the chagrin of libraries and their patrons everywhere.
