SpringyNews: A Decade Dedicated... to You!

March 2017

Springshare's Turning 10!

Ten years ago, the 7th, and final, Harry Potter book was released. The iPhone made its debut and forever changed how we interact with our cell phones. And, on April 30, 2007, Springshare installed the first production system of LibGuides... and what a ride the last 10 years have been!

One thing that hasn't changed, and in fact has made the past 10 years possible, is our full and absolute commitment to our clients - to you.

This issue of Springy News looks back on the last 10 years.. and the future of Springshare.

Read our interview with Steven Bell from Temple University on what it was like being Springshare's first client. Springshare has changed a lot over the years - see just how much by taking a visual tour. Also, learn how you can reinvent your Guides with our LibGuides Tips & Tricks.

True, our 10 year anniversary is a big one - but we're just getting started. Check out the future of Springshare with our soon-to-come LibCRM Tool (and sign up for a sneak-peek webinar) and our review recent and upcoming product updates.

If you're heading to ACRL, swing by Booth #1121 to say hi and attend our guest presentations (view the full line-up of guest speakers).

Cheers to you, for an amazing last 10 years.

The Springshare Team
