Can you believe it? SpringyCamp Day Two is tomorrow! Grab a s'moresational snack – August 10 is National S'mores Day, after all – and settle in around the campfire. It's time for another afternoon of sharing stories and getting Springy-inspired.
What is SpringyCamp?
SpringyCamp is our annual virtual conference – it's fun, informative, and totally free for all Springshare users! You can hear real-world stories of how librarians are using their Springy tools in innovative and exciting ways. Our first day of SpringyCamp 2023 last week was a rousing success, and now we're back for Day Two tomorrow.
Creating Stronger Communities with Springshare
At the second (and final!) day of SpringyCamp 2023, our presenters will explore how they use their Springy tools to streamline student support, improve internal communications, collaborate across the campus, and so much more.
Bonus: We're bringing our Springshare expertise and insight to you with an insider look at the Springshare Roadmap including new features like enhanced user interfaces for LibCal Spaces and the completely revamped LibGuides A-Z List.
