Getting Started with Sora and OverDrive for Administrators
Registration for the sessions is open.
Meeting information will be shared to the RILINK list on December 7 as well. Please share it with your administrators and curriculum leaders.
New to OverDrive or want to change your settings?
We are recommending that our member libraries that are members of the OverDrive group NOT include the OverDrive titles in Destiny, but rather have a link in Destiny Discover to go to the SORA site. To change your library's current setup contact Devin Kelly, our Account Executive at OverDrive.
Phone: +1 216-573-6886 ext. 1607
Fax: +1 216-573-6888
If you make the decision not to include the OverDrive titles in your catalog, use the RILINK Help Request Form to let us know about the change as well. We will update the settings for your Destiny site so that the titles will not get re-added and delete them from your catalog.
