Roasting marshmallows. Telling stories by the campfire. Slathering mustard (or ketchup) on your hotdog. Spraying on copious amounts of mosquito repellent...
But nothing truly says summer like SpringyCamp! Pack up your virtual knapsack and join us on August 3 and August 10 for our annual free virtual user conference! This year, we're doing things a bit differently - come and go as you please and simply drop in to the sessions that work with your schedule.
What to Expect at SpringyCamp
SpringyCamp is a user conference with a camp-like vibe designed to be fun and informative - full of presentations by Springshare users. This year, we'll have two days of SpringyCamp. Sign up for one or both days! Recordings of camp will be made available a few days after camp ends. You can also sign up to get a notification of when the videos are available to watch.
- Presentations: Overviews of projects that Springy libraries have done, presented by the librarians and staff that created them. While we don't offer training or instruction during these sessions, attendees are encouraged to ask questions.
- Where do our presenters come from? All presenters are volunteers. We greatly appreciate their time and effort in putting together these presentations.
- Have Fun: Interaction makes it fun! Join us in the Springshare Lounge and ask questions during the Q&A portions of the presentations.
- Sneak Peeks: The Springshare team will be popping in to give sneak peeks of new features coming soon!
- Transcription: All sessions will have live AI transcription via Zoom. Following SpringyCamp, sessions are re-transcribed for accuracy.
