LibCal, LibStaffer, LibInsight, LibGuides/LibApps, LibAnswers, and LibWizard Code Updates Coming Your Way!
We’ve been busy beavers over at Springy HQ, and we’re pleased to announce that LibCal, LibStaffer, LibInsight, LibGuides/LibApps, LibAnswers, and LibWizard will be updated by the end of the week of March 15 (depending on your app and region). Head on over to the Springy blog and sign up for email updates, and you’ll get an email when we publish new posts, including posts relating to code releases. Blog posts are cross-posted to Twitter and Facebook, too, if you’d rather get notifications there. 🙂

Booking Study Rooms

Booking study rooms in Bierce Library will soon be getting an upgrade!

We are initiating a LibCal study room booking pilot on June 8, 2015. The purpose of this pilot is to move all student booking of Bierce Library study rooms from the Sierra platform to the LibCal platform. We believe the LibCal platform will be more user-friendly and require less staff time to manage.

Paul, Stephanie, and the Access Department will be testing the new LibCal system during intersession, beginning May 11 and concluding June 5. During this time period, no booking of Bierce Library study rooms will be available to students. The Access folks will put a sign on each study room door noting that a new system will begin in June and that all study rooms are first come, first serve until June 8, 2015. The Bierce Library study room records in the catalog have been suppressed so that students cannot place a booking through Sierra. Paul has updated our webpages.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask Melanie, Stephanie or Paul.
