About Digital Discovery Day

VitalSource Digital Discovery Days are a fantastic opportunity to meet with peers, share information and experience, and discuss the opportunity and 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 of introducing digital learning resources into Higher Education and their impact on student success and outcomes.

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.
