LIS Suite: Free Springshare Apps for LIS Programs
This suite of Springshare products is free for library training programs. Includes: LibGuides CMS, LibWizard, LibAnswers Platform, and LibCal. For more details about the tools in this package, please check out this site: http://buzz.libwizard.com/lis . Springshare would also like to highlight that the content built in the platforms can serve as a living archive for student work -- content can be used for resume-building, proof of a learned skill, etc. Also, the school/program can utilize the resource to demonstrate skills mastered by current students for future librarians keen on attending that program.
a "free" platform to organize small collections (minimal cost may apply if the collection exceeds a set amount of titles). Great as a tool to use for an introduction to how information is organized and retrieved.
an inexpensive, simple OPAC that is hosted completely online. Great for cataloging, circulation, and acquisitions training.
