Announcing the Sierra “Academically Speaking” Idea Lab challenge


The Innovative Product Team invites you to participate in their next Sierra Idea Lab Challenge: Academically Speaking.

This challenge is for ideas that will improve functionality and introduce new features to support academic libraries and, more broadly, workflows in all types of libraries. Submit ideas about link checking, course reserves, system integrations, or anything else that would help library staff provide exceptional service to library users.

Submit your ideas for how Innovative can help academic libraries. This challenge starts on September 19, 2022.

Do you have something in mind that would make workflows easier in Sierra? Access the Academically Speaking Challenge in Idea Lab and submit your idea today! Submissions are open until October 2, 2022.

Getting input can make good ideas great. Voting and commenting will continue through October 9, 2022.

Pairwise voting begins October 31, 2022. When you enter the challenge and click on the Pairwise tab, you’ll be prompted to choose your favorite idea from a series of several pairs of ideas until you’ve seen every possible combination. Vote on as few or as many pairs of ideas as you’d like, and invite your colleagues to vote, too!

We look forward to seeing your ideas and appreciate your effort!
