Google Communities for Libraries Update

Friday, October 12, 2018

This week, Google announced it will be making changes to Google+, the platform used to support Google Communities for Libraries. DPI uses Google Communities to communicate with both the library and school communities.

We are following the developments of this announcement very closely and our Instructional Technology Services team is researching the overall impact as well as potential replacements for communication if Google+ ceases to be an option. The initial timeline indicates that Google+ will wind down over the course of 10 months. This will give our team time to best determine our course of action to make sure we are able to continue to communicate with the library community and allow the library community to engage with each other.

We will continue to keep you up to date on this issue as we learn more and start to determine next steps.
