We’re excited to unveil our new (and much improved) user forums/LibGuides users network/videos/calendar of events website – The Springshare Lounge at http://springsharelounge.com.
The Lounge is the next step in our community-building efforts – it is a true social network for our librarians to exchange ideas, questions, comments, suggestions, etc. Our old user forums had serious limitations, which is why they never took off – there was no way to export forums as rss feeds, get email notifications about the activity, etc. The new platform does all this and much more. For example, you can subscribe to RSS feeds to follow the latest activity and updates, RSS feeds for specific forum topics, LibGuides events updates, training videos, documents, email alerts about new posts, etc. The list of cool features is too long to mention here so head over to http://springsharelounge.com, register, and start using the site.
We will keep the old user forums website live until the end of the year, to help with the smooth transition to the new platform.
If you have any ideas/suggestions/questions about The Springshare Lounge, we’re all ears – as always!
