If you hadn’t heard, SpringyU is our self-paced learning portal where you can learn all about Springshare tools in three different ways:
- Blocks – short units on a particular topic. Each SpringyU Block walks you through with a video and list of tasks to set up, configure, or use different app functionality, all in under 5 minutes.
- Courses – contain a group of Blocks specifically assembled to help you accomplish clear-cut goals. SpringyU Courses are the guided approach to learning how to master functionality in Springshare tools, empowering you and your team to tackle library projects with confidence.
- Projects – combine SpringyU Blocks and Courses, focusing on practical use of one or more Springy Apps. Learn how to integrate apps together in innovative ways to take full advantage of Springy Apps’ capabilities.
New SpringyU Project Just Launched!
The newest project is New Employee Onboarding and uses parts of LibAnswers, LibCal, LibWizard, and LibStaffer to make the administrative work of new employee onboarding less tedious — allowing you to focus your efforts bringing the new employee up to speed.
As each institution’s onboarding process may differ, you may not need each piece of this project or subscribe to all apps used. This project is designed to highlight ways to streamline workflows using apps that you already subscribe to and take advantage of functionality internally that you might not currently be using.
Projects Available Now and Coming Soon!
If the above project sounds intriguing, be sure to check out our other project Promoting Customer Service in LibCal. This project makes use of LibWizard surveys to improve your organization’s events, appointments, space and/or equipment bookings in LibCal. Through this customer service-focused approach, you can identify offerings or services that your patrons or customers expect, discover obstacles that may inform your workflows, and get a pulse of overall satisfaction levels.
And that’s not all – we have plans for more and more projects! So keep an eye out and explore all the new new that SpringyU has for you!
