About Digital Discovery Day

This is not a sales day. It is a space for sharing information and
experiences, including the challenges that digital brings.



Customer stories from institutions with hands-on experience of implementing digital solutions.



Expert panels and group discussion.



The opportunity to make new connections and catch up with existing contacts in an informal environment over refreshments.


Who Should Attend?

The Digital Discovery Day brings together teaching staff, librarians, administrators, learning technologists and
publishers to discuss the opportunities and challenges of introducing technology into Higher Education.

Whether you have experiences to share, practical issues to work through or just want to find out what it’s all
about, the VitalSource Digital Discovery Day is a forum you should be part of.
