Welcome to IUG
IUG 2022 Virtual Conference
The IUG Steering Committee is excited to announce the dates for the IUG 2022 Virtual Conference! Save the dates April 5-8, 2022 (Tuesday-Friday). Submissions for presentations will be announced in a few weeks. Registration price and dates will be announced in the coming months (target registration open date is in January).
Save the Date: IUG’s Fall Forum Festival Fridays are coming!
IUG is pleased to offer five different virtual forum opportunities on the five Fridays in October from 11am to 1pm & 1pm to 3pm (eastern time).
How much will this cost me? Zip, zero, zilch. IUG is hosting the forum festival at no additional charge to members.
What is it: 4 hours each Friday in October set aside for forums on various topics. The day will be split into two 2-hour sections (11am to 1pm & 1pm to 3pm): one for Polaris and one for Sierra/Millennium.
When can I register? Now! Use the links below for the topics of interest. Note each topic has a separate link to the Polaris and Sierra/Millennium sessions.
What is the format? Both sessions are following the typical IUG forum format. Join us to share information, ideas, tips and tricks, challenges, and best practices.
How can I be involved? Great question! Volunteer to be a forum leader or forum recorder here. IUG is looking for 1 forum leader and 1 forum recorder per session to make this a success—an IUG steering committee member will run each session. The forum leader will collect questions prior to the meeting and, if needed, guide the discussion of the session. Forum recorders will take down notes/recap the forum discussion to be posted to the IUG website. Sign up here to volunteer as a forum leader or forum recorder
To influence the development and improvement of Innovative Interfaces, Inc. products
The Innovative Users Group was founded in 1991 as an international organization of member libraries who used the Innovative Interfaces, Inc integrated library software. It is an independent organization from Innovative Interfaces, Inc.
The IUG is led by the Steering Committee whose members are elected by the general membership. It consists of a Chair, Vice Chair/Chair Elect, Past Chair, Secretary/Treasurer, and five Members at Large. All members of the Steering Committee volunteer their services to the organization.
We have grown quite a bit since our first conference but as always our mission remains as it is stated in the Bylaws:
- Serve as a forum to influence the development and improvement of Innovative Interfaces, Inc. products for the benefit of IUG members
- Foster and improve relationships and communication among members, and between members and Innovative Interfaces
- Gather and disseminate information on the use of III products among the users of the systems
Further details on the IUG and its membership are available through its Bylaws.
