Creating a Staff Intranet: Background Info

A resource for NCLA attendees interested in creating an intranet using Springshare's LibApps.

NCCCLA Conference Presentation - March 10, 2016

Keeping Library Staff in the Know: Creating a OneStop Library Staff Intranet Using SpringShare LibApps

How It Began

How LibApps became a staff intranet for CPCC Libraries

  • Library documents, procedures, and best practices were scattered across several locations
    • Shared department drive
    • SharePoint
    • Personal drives
    • Library's website 
    • LibApps.
  • Seasoned staff had institutional knowledge that was no longer available after they retired or left for other positions.
  • We needed a single location for up-to-date information about library policies and procedures. 
  • We wanted to encourage the same workflow across all campuses. 
  • LibApps fits within library's technological framework. 

CPCC Libraries is using LibApps to maintain and update information related to

  • Reference 
  • Circulation 
  • Library meetings
  • Library and staff events
  • Other internal information
