Director orientation survey

IFLS is exploring ways to revamp and improve our new director orientation process. Please take this 5-minute survey to help us understand when to learn about certain topics and is best learned in person or online.

Responses will be collected until 07/31/2022. If you have any questions or want to relay any direct feedback concerning the orientation process, please reach out to Katelyn at noack@ifls.lib.wi.us.

Retiring: old Overdrive app

(Shared from an OverDrive email – 6/15/22 1:00 PM)

The legacy OverDrive app is being discontinued. This change will simplify how you promote your digital collection, train your staff, and support your users. Libby has a lot of neat features!

Next steps

The next step is to actively encourage your OverDrive app users to switch to Libby, with a goal of fully discontinuing the OverDrive app in early 2023. Starting the week of July 25, the following message will be displayed to your users in the OverDrive app:

In-app message to OverDrive app users that reads

Later this year, this in-app message will be updated to remind your users about this change. Your library will receive advance notice and more information ahead of this update.

The full email, with a list of resources for librarians and users, is on the IFLS E-resources & ILL page.
