Though it’s hard to believe, it’s been a little over 3 months since we launched the Resource Center! I hope your school or library has had the opportunity to explore our offerings, like print materials, live webcasts, recommended lists and service enhancements–just to name a few!

We want to ensure the Resource Center evolves with that state of the industry. We will continue to post new updates and features to further enhance your digital collection to meet your users’ needs and wants. Please do not hesitate to let us know if we missed the mark or if perhaps we came close but you need a small adjustment to better reflect your audience! So what’s new for July? Let’s review…

Our school partners can benefit from the Understanding Lending Models training module, detailing how to navigate the different lending models we offer in OverDrive Marketplace. Also available now, How to Shop for Titles for Your School’s Digital Website, focusing on the shopping experience for schools. Get out there and shop ’till you drop, in time for the back-to-school season! Watch now, under K-12 > Staff Training > OverDrive Marketplace.

In line with Adam’s post, CREATE READING HAPPINESS: CELEBRATE SUMMER BLOCKBUSTERS WITH PAGE TO SCREEN BOOKS AND STREAMING VIDEO, we encourage all partners to utilize our Book to Movie Half-Sheet Flyer, available under Marketing & Outreach > Print-Ready Materials > What’s new. While the piece itself isn’t title specific, your school or library can feel free to add your own content! In a Word processor (Microsoft Word, Open Office, etc.), adjust the orientation of the page to set up two columns. On one side, add your most popular “Book to Movie” titles. On the other, add a few jacket covers from You can print on the back of our half-sheet and distribute as handouts or display in two-sided display stands.
