Get ready for a great month of training!

As you may recall from previous posts, the Training Team delivers webinars every month on either the Sora reading app or Marketplace, and we offer both an “Essentials” session to get you up to speed quickly and a “Connections” session that explores a single topic in more detail.

OverDrive Marketplace Essentials webinarApril is a Marketplace month, so get ready for a short but thorough and information Marketplace Essentials webinar, where we walk you through the basics of shopping and admin tasks in our back-end portal.

on Tuesday, April 12 at 3:00 PM Eastern Time.

Next, we’ll explore the much-requested topic of reports in an all-new webinar, Marketplace Connections: Advocate for Your Digital Collection with Data and Insights. In this session, you’ll learn how to prepare a collection of reports that demonstrate the impact of your school’s digital collection, including those that help you advocate for budget, access, and recognition. We’ll also explore how to improve your workflow with simple, automated features, and we’ll dive into available data on Sora usage and interest to take the pulse of your digital collection.
