Ready to get more involved in the IUG community?
Want to help drive development of Sierra and Polaris?
Curious about how Innovative Product Owners consider and prioritize new features?
Seeking an opportunity to show off your awesome Polaris and Sierra expertise?
You should join the Idea Lab Team!
While everyone at every Innovative library can participate in Idea Lab, members of the Idea Lab Team work behind the scenes to make connections between ideas, to keep the conversation flowing, and to help Innovative understand the possible use cases and need for suggested ideas.
Idea Lab Team members are expected to serve as both Moderators and Expert Reviewers during their terms:
• Moderators help idea authors clarify the value and purpose of their ideas. Moderators keep the conversation going by connecting similar ideas and soliciting comments from the community.
• Expert Reviewers assess ideas that have passed a certain threshold of votes and comments for assess overall value, need, and feasibility.
Not able to attend IUG annual meetings? No worries! Idea Lab is a global community; we want team members who can represent libraries worldwide.
