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! 🙂
