Introducing the hoopla Video Helpdesk, Available Exclusively on YouTube — hoopla Library Admin Site

With hoopla debuting eBooks and Comics recently, we wanted to share our newest resource, the hoopla Video Helpdesk. At this YouTube video destination, you’ll find helpful tutorial videos for hoopla for all scenarios from registration through individual device overviews. We wrapped them in this easy to navigate video series where users on Mac and PC can click the device they want to learn more about. Mobile users can view all videos in an easy to navigate hoopla Helpdesk Playlist. Please feel free to share this YouTube link for our new hoopla Video HelpDesk with users, friends and family.
