Springshare is the vendor for the Galveston College library’s libguides, room reservations, chat, event registrations and many other services. As stated on the page, the website is built from a LibGuide using LibGuides CMS (content management system).
The library website was designed, created and is maintained by Telishia “Tee” Mickens, director of library and learning resources. The website build started in summer 2019 and the site went live in fall 2019.
“Libraries are hubs for knowledge, research and so much more,” Mickens said. “The library website gives users an online experience to access library resources with the same value as they would find walking through the doors.”
The library website allows users to easily locate resources, find the newest resources and services offered, participate in virtual events and displays, virtually connect with the library team through Chat Reference and more.
The library website has had 38,094 views since 2019, with an average of 1,800 views a month.
