SpringyCamp Design For Your Users: Registration Now Open! (Oct 5-7)

Program Information:

Dates: October 5 – 7, 2016
Times vary by day; all times listed in U.S. Eastern Time.

Cost: Completely, 100% free!

Audience: Exclusive event for Springshare Customers.

  • Academic Library Track: Oct 5-6
  • LibGuides – Focus on Community: Oct 7

Don’t let the above tracks limit you – if you’re a public librarian, feel free to attend sessions in the Academic Library Track. Register for one, two, or all three days – you pick and choose which days work for you! And don’t forget to bring your virtual s’mores because this is gonna be a campfire you won’t want to miss.

SpringyCamp works best if we all work together: We do have a limited number of seats, so be kind and computer-pool with your colleagues. If several folks at your library want to attend and you’re going to participate via a single computer, just register once. This way even more folks can attend, making SpringyCamp a truly global event! 🙂

MBLC staff collaborated on a library fact-finding mission that sent them all over the Web – deep into the Digital Commonwealth online archive and dozens of Massachusetts history sites – and digging through hundreds of files, photos, and annual reports in our Boston office.
