Lucidchart for k-12 librarians

k-12 librarians are using Lucidchart’s online, collaborative diagramming software to simply their work.

How do libraries use Lucidchart?

Lucidchart offers tools to help you create many types of diagrams that are beneficial to elementary, middle, and high school librarians. First, simplify complex library processes such as image requests, returns, and interlibrary loan so that employees are never confused again.

Next, create organizational charts to map the positions of personnel throughout the library, or create a site map of your library’s website for easy reference.

Finally, enhance your patrons’ library experience by creating a research guide that details where to search for an item or how to begin research.

Which features does Lucidchart offer?

Lucidchart is easy to use—there’s no learning curve! Create a flowchart, org chart, site map, or mind map with ease, and personalize your document with your own uploaded images.

Because Lucidchart is meant to be collaborative, you can invite as many people as you’d like to work with you and can see their changes instantly. Then, when your document is complete, share and publish it in a variety of forms.

How much does Lucidchart cost?

Lucidchart is currently offering free educational licenses.

“There are a lot of needs for flow charting, especially with project management. Flowcharts rock as a way to measure progress in your work, but they also work well for user training. Flowcharts of 'how to search the catalog' or 'how to research your topic' are great tools for our users. Check Lucidchart out!”
