Thursday, August 6
8:00 AM – 11:00 PM

Team OverDrive will review the agenda and events for the conference.
Let’s explore the current landscape of digital media in libraries with industry leaders. In addition to sharing data you need to know and understand, OverDrive will preview some of the exciting service enhancements on the near-term roadmap designed to help your library satisfy the growing wants and needs from users everywhere.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it: Reach out to and convert every member of your community to a digital reading enthusiast. Learn methods to attract the next generation of visitors to your digital collection—and how to keep them coming back for more.
Content is the core of your digital library, and this session will share new tips and tricks for using OverDrive’s Marketplace to grow your collection, tactics for evaluating circulation, how to effectively manage holds and more. Then hear how leading libraries are using these tools to make data-driven decisions for the fastest-growing “branch” for many libraries.
Librarians and publishers discuss must-reads and upcoming new releases, and share ideas for how to design and merchandise a digital collection through Readers’ Advisory initiatives and services.
How do you take your digital library to a level it’s never seen before? Learn from real-world examples and case studies of how libraries and schools have engaged more users and increased circulation by making small changes that generated big results. Find out what sparked their success and how you can implement those ideas at your library.
After a jam-packed day of information and ideas, take some time to reflect on what it all means to you and your library. This independent workshop will lay the groundwork for collaborative activities on day two.
Enjoy a night out with your new friends for dinner, dancing and full access to all exhibits at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame & Museum.

The Westin is only a short walk to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame & Museum, but limited transportation will be provided for those in need. 

Friday, August 7
8:00 AM – 3:00 PM

In this breakout session with your peer libraries, administrators will share best practices for operating a digital library, and cover important topics such as goal-setting, staff responsibilities, budgeting and generating new revenue streams and more.
Two heads are better than one. In this interactive breakout session, you will have the opportunity to share your library’s experiences and challenges with others. You’ll work with a small group to formulate short and long-term action plans for writing your own success story.
We’re listening! During this informal roundtable discussion, sit down with members of Team OverDrive to share feedback and brainstorm new ways to better serve your community.
OverDrive CEO, Steve Potash, and members of OverDrive’s product development team, take you into the future and provide a firsthand showcase of what’s next for digital media in libraries and schools.
