Changes to Ideas
In case you haven’t heard: The Idea Lab is making way for Idea Exchange!
The Idea Lab team has been working hard to migrate the best ideas in Idea Lab to Idea Exchange. Learn more about this process in our recent post: FAQ: Idea Lab is now the Idea Exchange
Note that you don’t have to be an IUG member to be part of Idea Exchange; just working at an Innovative library qualifies you to submit, comment on, and vote on ideas.
