Summer is in full swing in the Northern Hemisphere, which means two things: we’ve swapped comfy pants for comfy shorts; and we’re getting close to SpringyCamp!
In a year unlike any other when services dramatically changed (and are still changing), the Springy team wanted to host an extra special virtual conference for our customers. To that end, we’re bringing you two exciting days of camp with an expanded list of presenters! Plus, new ways to engage and interact with other Springy users!
SpringyCamp 2020 – August 5th & 6th
The New Now: Promoting Access & Redefining Services
This year’s camp will explore four themes:
- Using Springshare Tools to Manage & Record COVID-19 Information
- New Partnerships: Using Springshare Tools Outside of the Library
- We’re All Distance Learners Now: Using Springshare Tools to Share Information with Staff and Patrons
- Connections: Your Library & Social Justice – Amplify Black Voices with Springshare Tools
