BookPoints Orientation

We've prepared a detailed checklist of what to expect over the next several weeks.  The following process will help you create accounts on our support website, register for training classes, and customize your summer reading program website!

Who? What? Where?
 You!

Identify who will be participating on your Summer Reading Setup Team. 

This is usually 1-2 people in a small library system and can be up to half a dozen people in a large library system.

Your Library!
Setup Team (all)

Everyone on the Setup Team should create their OWN user account on https://bookpoints.org.  This will allow you to register for training events, sign up for private training appointments, and allows us to send you important emails.

Note: only the 1-5 people who will help with spring *setup* should create bookpoints.org accounts.  You do NOT need to have every librarian in your library system create bookpoints.org accounts.

ONE member of Setup Team ONE member of the Setup Team will complete the 2018 On-boarding form on behalf of their library.  This form provides some basic information about your program, such as your preferred URL.  It will allow us to identify every library setup team member and confirm that they are authorized to request support from us. https://bookpoints.org/clients/2018-onboard
