Last week Team OverDrive traveled thousands of miles to present in front of library and business partners at the American Library Association Annual Conference as well as the Tokyo International Book Fair. At ALA, we gave standing room only crowds a sneak peek at the new OverDrive coming later this year as well as showed off the latest innovations including digital newspapers and magazines and browser-based audiobooks. We also met with a capacity crowd of librarians at our annual breakfast meeting where we took product and feature recommendations from some of our most valued partners.

As the ALA conference came to a close OverDrive CEO Steve Potash hopped on a plane to Tokyo to present the latest updates on OverDrive Japan in front of countless media members, bloggers and industry reporters.
Team OverDrive also exhibited and presented to hundreds of publishers and librarians through the book fair Executives from our partners at Media Do as well as our parent company, Rakuten, also gave presentations on these budding partnerships. OverDrive has been tirelessly traveling the world (and bringing the library with us) to spread the word about the newest enhancements in digital lending.

In August, however, we’ll be staying at home as we welcome the library world to Cleveland for Digipalooza, our international user conference, where we’ll share a live demonstration of the next wave of innovations that will provide the deepest reader engagement yet for libraries around the world. We hope you’ll join us to see what’s next in world of digital library lending.
