2006 IUG Member Registration Details
Here are a few things to remember to help make your registration go smoothly.
Please read through before proceeding to online registration. You may also want
to check the preliminary program (when available) for scheduling and descriptions,
especially for pre-conference events.
- Please be sure to check the IUG
Membership Roster for your institution's IUG member number before you
start to register. Your institution's 2006 membership dues must be paid and
recorded in order to qualify for the member rates. Please note that your institution's
IUG member number is NOT the same as your institution's Innovative CSDirect
library ID (site code). If you do not know your CSDirect library ID, please
contact your site coordinator or the Innovative Help Desk.
- The initial screen of the registration form requires you to enter your e-mail
address and to select a payment type (check or credit card) and whether you
are registering for the main conference and, if applicable any pre-conference
events, or just registering for pre-conference events on Friday, May 19.
- The next screen asks for your personal information and IUG member ID and
Innovative site code. Please note that required fields are “starred”
in red (*)
- The third screen prompts you to register for the main conference, optional
pre-conference events, public library/law users group luncheons, and to accept
the cancellation policy.
- The last screen prompts you for payment type. If paying by check,
a copy of the invoice available at the end of the registration steps MUST
accompany payment. The payment instructions appear at the bottom
of the invoice when printed, many times ending up on a second page.
Be sure to print all pages. Credit card payment (Visa, MasterCard, American
Express) requires no further action on your part.
- When you finish your online registration, you will receive an e-mail indicating
that you completed the registration process. If you believe that you have
completed all the registration steps and do not receive an e-mail within 24
hours, contact Kathy O’Gorman at Kathy@innovativeusers.org
IUG Attendee Search Form
You may search the list the currently registered conference attendees at:
Please keep the search simple, such as last name only or first and last name.
The "Company" field is interpreted as Institution. Use one or two words in
this field and add "*" as a way to deal with variations.
Results may be sorted by name, city, institution [as entered], or email. Please
note the state sort, while listed, does not function properly given the mix
of US and non-US entries. Sorting by city is the best geographic sort possible
at this time. A list of attendees will be included in your conference bag, with
a final list posted on the conference page at the conclusion of the conference.
The following special events and workshops are included on the registration
- Pre-Conference for New Users
- Innovative Workshops - limited to 250 participants for each workshop.
- Innovative Law Users Group (for ILUG members only) luncheon

Please note that if you want a vegetarian lunch at any of the meal functions

Group is subsidizing a portion of the ILUG luncheon cost.

- 12:00 p.m.)
- Target audience: Local System Administrators and other staff who work with the INN-Reach product at the local system level.
- While INN-Reach is easy for both patrons and staff to use, there are many details that make INN-Reach a very rich and
sophisticated product. This workshop is designed to give library staff using INN-Reach greater knowledge about the inner-workings of the product.

different types of disasters, such as a fire, hurricane,
flooding, or hardware failure. We will also review what to do
when the unthinkable happens and the library finds itself in the
midst of a disaster scenario. What are the first steps? Once the
most critical and immediate responses have been made, then what?
We'll look at recovery, service continuity, and other issues
involved in getting the library back to full functionality,
