Keep reading for a sneak- peek of this month’s new sessions.OverDrive training


Tuesday Feb. 13 at 2:00 PM EST- Getting Started with OverDrive

Our first webcast focuses on getting patrons started with Libby– the one-tap reading app! Join this session to learn the basics of using Libby—browsing, borrowing and customizing. Additionally, we’ll highlight some lesser known features like sending borrowed items to Kindle, taking notes and highlights, and updating your download settings. This session is perfect if you support patrons directly when they have questions about OverDrive.

Wednesday Feb. 14 at 2:00 PM EST- Introduction to Marketplace

This new webcast will serve as a great place for selectors and other staff new to OverDrive to start learning how to use OverDrive Marketplace. We’ll answer questions like: How do I update my contact information? How do I purchase titles? What report shows circulation information? and Where do I go for help? If you already feel confident you know the answers to these questions, we recommend attending our more advanced Marketplace training, Collection Development for Your Digital Library.

Wednesday Feb. 21 at 2:00 PM EST– Collection Development for Your Digital Library

Now that you’ve been introduced to Marketplace, we have another new webcast that will take you on a deeper dive into the many tools available across the site to help you make digital content decisions. We’ll highlight how to view sales and recommended lists as well as popular titles that may be missing from your collection. Additionally, we’ll demonstrate how to use automated tools that can help manage in-demand and expiring content.

All sessions will provide you the opportunity to chat with a member of OverDrive’s Training team, so bring your questions and a colleague! Register for all three, 30-minute sessions on the Resource Center> Staff Training. See you soon!
