“Digipalooza is my GPS for navigating the bumpy road of digital library world. Practical and forward-thinking librarians share best practices while OverDrive staff provide background and answer questions,” said Sarah Redman, adult services librarian at Capital Area District Library in Michigan and past attendee of Digipalooza 2008. “The conference is essential for librarians who work with OverDrive at any level, giving us opportunities to discuss trends and share ideas for creating robust digital media catalogs.”

In addition to the jam-packed informative sessions, Digipalooza attendees manage to have a little fun as well. Conference events include Books, Bowling, and Billiards at The Corner Alley, as well as a Digipalooza Party at Cleveland Browns Stadium.
