Your staff is busy. Between assisting users with the many programs your library runs, managing the library itself, one-on-one meetings with patrons, cataloging and trying to offer book recommendations, it can be hard to find time for professional development. Team OverDrive understands that your time is valuable and we want to make sure you can learn about new OverDrive features and services when it’s convenient for you.

Our on demand Learning Center offers short training modules on everything from the user experience to navigating Marketplace and even how to manage reports. These pre-recorded training videos are perfect for getting new staff up to speed or for providing existing staff updates on what’s new with your OverDrive service. You’ll even find “Getting Started” guides and training templates that you can use to host classes for new users.


While on the Learning Center, you can sign up for our live training sessions which offer an in-depth look at the basics of OverDrive Marketplace and using the service from an end user perspective. You can also sign up for our quarterly hot topic webinar where we discuss trending issues in the digital library world. The upcoming session will be all about helping your patrons find their next favorite book.

In addition to the training sessions we currently have available, what aspects of your OverDrive services would you like to learn more about? Let us know in the comments section or by emailing
