Feeling #alaleftbehind? In case you missed our awesome line-up of guest speakers at the ALA-Midwinter Conference in Atlanta, we have the recordings available on our Facebook page!
And while you’re there, like our Facebook page to have our posts display in your Facebook Feed. This way, you won’t miss out any product update announcements, video presentations, and more.
These 15-min guest presentations by Springshare users will get you thinking about all the new and interesting ways you can use your Springshare tools.
Perhaps you’ll want to setup a ‘Ghosts in the Library’ LibGuide like SUNY New Paltz or use LibGuides CMS as a course management system like the University of Florida. Or take a page from Goldey-Beacom College and Cleveland State University and consider using LibGuides and LibWizard as on-boarding tools for new hires.
So take a minute (or two or three) and learn from your fellow colleagues on the endless possibilities of Springy tools.
Forget about being #alaleftbehind – it’s time to get #springyinspired!

Cleveland State University: Building Online Workshops with LibGuides & LibWizard
