SpringyCamp is our totally free virtual user conference where you get to hear how other libraries and institutions from around the world are using their Springshare tools in interesting and innovative ways. This year, we did things a little bit differently, with the option to come and go as you please and simply drop in to the sessions that worked with your schedule.
Over this year's two-day event, we hosted 21 presenters with topics ranging from website redesign to enhancing information literacy. A big shout-out goes to our amazing presenters who dedicated their valuable time, effort, and knowledge to show us super cool ways they're using our Springy tools!
If you missed any of the presentations, don't worry! All presentation recordings, slides, and links are up and ready on the SpringyCamp site.
Campsite Fun & Games
SpringyCamp isn't just about the presentations, it's about having fun too! This year, we all had a great time participating in the SpringyCamp Scavenger Hunt and SpringyCamp Bingo! By playing, SpringyCampers have the chance to win the Official SpringyCamp 2023 hat or pair of socks! If you haven't submitted your scavenger hunt or bingo card yet, you have until tomorrow (August 17) to do so!
SpringyCampers added photos from their own camping adventures and screenshots of their completed Bingo cards to the Letters from Camp Kudoboard.
If you attended SpringyCamp, make sure you leave some feedback for another shot at winning a SpringyCamp hat or socks!
