Our digital library, powered by Overdrive, is switching to a new platform called Sora. This new platform has a new look and additional features that will make it even easier for students and teachers to find good books to read for fun and for the classroom. Users earn badges for different actions completed including borrowing your first book, finishing a book, taking notes, highlighting, and more. It is also easier to renew and return digital books.
Sometime in the next couple of weeks you will begin to see this icon on the library services page in the portal, on your websites, and on iPads.
Try it out today!
Take some time to poke around in Sora and see how it functions so you can work with students & teachers to get them up to speed. Also, please take some time to share this blog post and video with your campus so that everyone is prepared when the change comes. We expect the logo & link to change in the portal next Friday, October 12th. The ipads will slowly follow, but should be done by the end of October.
