Important Notice: Sunsetting Rhizr

Effective May 30, 2020

We have some important news for you. To streamline the services offered by the Gottesman Libraries, the Rhizr platform will be shutting down on May 30, 2020. We sincerely regret if this is an imposition and wish to share the following details to help inform and reassure you as you transition your Rhizr content.

How does this affect me?

  • You will no longer be able to create new Rhizrs or Remix other Rhizrs, effective immediately.
  • You will no longer be able to access the Rhizr platform or your Rhizr account from May 30, 2020

What should I do to prepare?

To save the content stored in your account please follow these directions:

  • Open a Rhizr that you wish to save (Rhizr that you've created or that you moderate)
  • Click on the 'Export' button
  • This will convert the Rhizr to a flat structure and open the print window
  • Change Destination as 'Save as PDF' and save to your computer.

Whether you joined Rhizr in 2016 or more recently, we want to take a moment to say a big thank you. Our users mean everything to us and we hope that you continue to collaborate, develop courses and lessons in creative and engaging ways. We welcome your feedback and input. If you have any questions about this transition, please email the library staff at

Thank you,

The Rhizr Team at Gottesman Libraries
