The Librarian-First Approach
#librarianfirst Design

#librarianfirst Community
Our active librarian user community is one of our greatest assets. Benefit from the experience of librarians world-wide and share best practices with the community of 130,000+ peers.
#librarianfirst Needs
Every year we add hundreds of new features based on the feedback from our librarian user community. The platform evolves along with the needs of the library profession.
Fully Customizable & Responsive
Customize Look & Feel to match your institution's branding.
Multi-lingual capability via Language Customizations.
Responsive design - looks great on mobile, tablet, and desktop.
Accessibility & User Privacy
We are committed to ensuring that all users can enjoy the benefits of the Springshare Platform. All our public pages are designed with accessibility in mind, and we are working on making admin pages fully accessible too.
Patron privacy is critically important in a digital-first world. All patron-identifiable information is encrypted, and we conduct regular privacy audits. Local administrators can scrub and purge any patron identifiable-info at regular intervals.
