Customer Love  

"Springshare is a phenomenal company with products and people that can’t be beat. With LibGuides CMS and LibCal we have everything we need – an amazing website, organized library guides, calendars for our hours and events, and more forms and feedback than we could ever use."

Joli McClelland

Queens University of Charlotte

"Students, faculty, administrators, and the library staff rave about LibGuides, LibCal, LibAnswers, and LibInsight. Why? Because access to the library resources and library instruction has never been easier."

Francis Kuykendall

South Arkansas Community College

"In the past we had virtual reference services scattered through different systems. LibAnswers makes it easy by putting them all one place. Even better, it allows us to collect and analyze data on all our reference services to inform decision-making."

Gabe Gossett

Western Washington University

"I love LibGuides. It gives us a simple, customizable framework to build our research guides that doesn't take an experienced web designer to use. It makes it easy and efficient to build new guides and update old ones, and it's easy to train new librarians and staff to use."

Jason Puckett

Georgia State University

"Springshare's flexibility in meeting needs of a variety of populations and bridging service failure areas…plus being able to bet on and try ideas instantly, creates an agile environment."
