Improving staff workflows, bettering internal communication, making processes more efficient… that’s the holy grail for any workplace. But these initiatives often hit roadblocks due to the lack of easy-to-use tools to create a functional, affordable, and effective Staff Intranet.

Springy tools to the rescue – the same tools you use to better serve your patrons (LibGuides, LibAnswers, LibCal, LibStaffer…) can serve a double-duty and become a backbone of an effective Staff Intranet.

We'll Cover:

  • Moving your intranet to the cloud with internal LibGuides CMS groups.

  • Creating a private LibAnswers FAQ group as a repository for staff FAQs.

  • Build an internal Staff Calendar in LibCal v2

  • Saving time with automated staffing using LibStaffer

Who Is This Session For?

  • Folks who have LibGuides CMS or are curious about upgrading.
  • Folks with LibAnswers that are curious about all the power you have with Groups
  • Folks have or are curious about LibStaffer.
