By default, every SessionLab user has access to a Public library of facilitation methods in SessionLab. Contribution to this library is voluntarily possible for any SessionLab user if you would like to add knowledge to the public domain.

Every user also has a workspace library where they can add their favourite personal methods which will only be visible to themselves and any members of their workspace. Users with multiple workspaces or users with a Business subscription will have a different library view for each of the workspaces they have access to.

All the content you create in the library is private by default (only shared with yourself and the members of your workspace) and you can only intentionally set a library method’s visibility to ‘public’ if you want that method to be available to all other visitors of the library. You can find more information here on how to change the visibility of a library method between public and private.

The public library

If you go to the ‘All Methods’ view in the library, there you’ll see all the methods you have access to; all public methods and also your private ones.

The publicly available content in the library is created by renowned organisations or content providers in the facilitation, design and training industries who have approved their content to be featured in the SessionLab public library (e.g. Hyper Island, Thiagi Group, International Association of Facilitators, Liberating Structures, MediaLab Amsterdam, Gamestorming) and from individuals who have submitted their own methods to the library and made them publicly visible.

Your personal library

All SessionLab users can maintain their own library of facilitation techniques by either adding a session block which has already been created to the library from one of your sessions, or creating a method directly in the library. Yourself and any other members of your workspace will be able to see the methods in your shared library.

You can read more here about how to add methods to the library.

To access your personal library, use the ‘Methods I created’ view in your library.

Your workspace's library

Each SessionLab user is a member of at least one workspace and you can find your workspace's library by clicking on the name of your workspace in the library header.

Any member of your workspace will be able to see and add their own methods to your workspace's library.

Moving library blocks between your libraries

If you have a Pro subscription and you already have some methods created in your Personal library and you want to make them accessible to your colleagues in a different workspace, you can easily move those methods between libraries.

Open the ‘Methods I created‘ view in the library and then open any of the library blocks by clicking on them and selecting ‘Edit’. Then you can choose the ‘Change team’ option and select your destination workspace's library.
