The Community Center offers meaningful opportunities to engage with people who have had similar experiences and who can benefit from your insights. Discussions, updates, and events are all aimed at improving the work we do together.

Make the most of your library community

Learn from others

Ask specific, detailed questions of peers who have accomplished something you admire. How did they configure a product you just started using? What workflows worked for them? Community members are glad to answer questions and give you a place to start.

Get the big picture

Library work is always changing. When you share your stories, challenges, and wins, you’ll find you’re not alone. There’s a community of informed, friendly people who you can turn to for answers, input, and inspiration.

Contribute to the future

Many of our best ideas for product improvements come from community members. Product teams review all ideas submitted and we provide regular status updates. We also host focus groups so we can listen and incorporate different perspectives into product feature development.

Grow your professional skills

The Community Center makes it easy to build your network and develop expertise. You can serve on leadership teams and program committees, present your workflows or projects, and participate in professional development activities.

“The Community Center helps us transition new staff in without information overload. People can get familiar with systems and modules at their own pace and then follow up as needed. That frees up the time for our managers and allows for more robust learning.”
