This year, SpringyCamp took place on two action-packed days over the course of two weeks! We dedicated one day per week to 'Camp, with a strong lineup of presentations on each day. We'd say this year was a smashing success; here are some things that made it work:
There were so many great presentations this year - we'd suggest you hop on over to the SpringyCamp site and watch them all! However, a few stood out as being particularly timely and useful for Springy users, and we've highlighted those below.
New Program Possibilities with LibWizard Tutorials
Kayla Harris and Jason Wardell, University of Dayton
The University of Dayton Libraries had tremendous participation for virtual programming events designed in LibWizard Tutorials during the 2020-2021 academic year. With in-person events resuming, we have continued to use LibWizard Tutorials for programming and expanded this use for hybrid events.
Embedding Creativity into Your Guides
Meredith Kostek, Lewis and Clark Law School
From videos, to interactive slides, to Padlet timelines, to Canva created advertising and newsletters, there's no end to the innovative ways you can communicate with your patrons. This presentation will take you through the nuts and bolts of embedding, then on a creative journey opening up the possibilities of what you can add to your own LibGuides.
Springy Tools & The Day of Research
Brian Holda and Emily Hayes, Davenport University
Brian and Emily explore how Springshare tools helped revolutionize the Davenport University (DU) Day of Research during the COVID pandemic and continues doing so today. LibGuides was used as a hub for the event itself, LibWizard was used for submissions and judging, and LibCal is slated to be used for scheduling future events.

Leigh Jackson and Stephanie Quail, York University (CA)
Recent research suggests that workers expect employers to provide vibrant training. Library professionals need new skills that spark both innovation and fruitful collaboration. To encourage continuous learning, Leigh and Stephanie are constructing openly licensed professional development resources using LibGuides.
