Michigan's Ploud Home

How Will the Application Process Work?

See here for criteria, timeline, and the process.

All interested libraries will need to fill out an application available here beginning May 20. On June 3, the Library of Michigan will review the applications and determine the pilot group. The criteria for consideration are:

      • Having attended or viewed an orientation webinar by LocalHop training staff
      • Currently being a Ploud library with an active site
      • Currently using a calendar (it doesn't have to be the native Ploud calendar.
      • Committing to using the LocalHop calendar for a minimum of three months. It will be available to pilot libraries through the end of the contract year (May 31, 2020)
      • Committing to providing feedback about the product
      • Preference will be given to libraries using event registration software (it doesn't have to be the native Ploud event registration software). This is not a requirement.
      • Preference will be given to libraries willing to explore the community calendar feature. This is not a requirement.
