Good news – we are totally revamping the Springshare Lounge! The goal is to make it more of a user community where you all are interacting with each other. Plus, its time that the orange and green banners got an overhaul.
So here is what’s on the horizon.
The first stage of the redesign will take place the week of August 15th – the lounge will look much prettier! Take a gander at the new look & feel of the site:
Phase two of the Lounge Redesign involves the roll-out of groups. We want to make it easier for librarians to network, exchange ideas, get questions answered, and discuss strategies with like-minded peers. We’ll be creating groups in the Lounge based around common themes or topics – for example the ‘Guides in Instruction Group’ or the ‘K-12 LibGuiders Group’ or even the ‘Mobile Design & Usability Group’. By joining (and creating!) groups that interest you, you’ll become part of a micro community of ‘Guiders interested in the same themes and topics – these micro-communities will be a great way to foster discussions, get ideas, and get inspired!
Got a suggestion for a group? Tell us! We’re also looking for a few great librarians to act as group leaders – if you’re ready to help get some conversations rolling, let us know!
We are super excited about our Lounge redesign and we think you’ll be excited too!
All the best,
The Springshare Team
