Did you know you can customize the collections featured on your OverDrive website and in Libby? Yes! Curation allows you to highlight format-specific content, newly added titles, or themed lists to promote library events or popular topics. These curated lists engage your users and make it easier for them to find new titles to borrow.

If this is a topic you’d like to learn more about you’re in luck. Register for Curating Collections for Your Digital Library on August 22 at 2:00 P.M. ET. During this session, we’ll demonstrate how to create automated and hand-picked lists in OverDrive Marketplace. Note: You’ll need specific Marketplace permissions to curate.  We’ll also share some time-saving curation tips like how to curate based on past purchase orders or OverDrive recommended lists. After this session, you’ll be inspired to create all kinds of lists for your users—Page to Screen, Read by a Celeb, Beach Reads, and Summertime Cooking are just a few, fun examples we’ve seen!
