One More LibConnect New Features Webinar!

Alas, this is exactly what happened to Springy Talia just minutes before her LibConnect: New Features webinar last week.

15 Years of Springshare!

April 30th marked the 15th anniversary of the first LibGuides install! That’s right, if LibGuides were a person, it would be eligible for a learner’s permit in many states.
