Mark your calendar! OverDrive training for Listen Up! Vermont

As anyone who has taken the "Browse, Check Out, Download!" class (formerly Digital Library 101) knows, this class run by OverDrive is the perfect introduction to learning about the Listen Up! Vermont collection, and prepares you to answer just about any question your patrons might have about using the service.

With our new Round Five members getting ready to start up, OverDrive is offering two sessions of this excellent training. We strongly suggest all Round Five libraries attend the training -- there is no limit on the number of staff that can attend -- and we also suggest that current participants consider sitting in on a class, especially since our collection has added iPod compatibility since most of us first took the training.
