We have just had training in Springshare, which is the platform we will be using to create new library guides. The libguide software is one of several specialist apps which it provides for libraries, including chat, staffing scheduling and calendar platforms. I was quite impressed with Springshare’s libguide software, not only is it easy to use, intuitive, simple and colourful, the company does an excellent job of providing online training and support, with a number of video presentations detailing all aspects of putting together libguides. Examples of libguides from other libraries showed us that the Springshare guides really are good, easy to use, colourful and able to convey access to information for users concisely and in an interesting manner. I’m starting work on a couple of new libguides using this software, so hopefully I will get results just as good.
