It has been a busy summer for us at Springshare, and we have a lot of exciting news to announce, so lets get to it!
Starting things off, the LibGuides Community has been growing at a record pace over the last few months. We added 43 libraries in March, 52 in April, an astounding 57 libraries in May, and 31 through the first 1/3rd of June. Just today we installed LibGuides member site #700 as part of the Elmbrook School District’s adoption of LibGuides, and we have many more libraries joining up before the end of the month.
We are in the final testing phases of the latest LibGuides update, which we hope to have copied out to the live servers within the next week. This update contains many small improvements, as well as some long-requested features, all of which we will detail on the blog once the changes have been taken live. Keep an eye out for that announcement in the next week or so.
The LibAnswers and CampusGuides beta systems are also getting some last minute improvements before we take them live. We are looking foward to getting these new apps into the real-world as soon as possible, so be sure to watch this site for more information about the beta program.
Last but not least, we have received our booth assignment for ALA Chicago – come say hello at booth #2757 between July 11th and 14th. We look foward to seeing you there!
