Collaboration and Convergence


We invite you to attend the 15th annual GIL Users Group Meeting, on Thursday, May 14, 2015 at Middle Georgia State College, Macon Campus (100 College Station Dr., Macon, GA 31206). The opening session and keynote address will be held in Room 211 (banquet hall) of the Professional Sciences Building.

GALILEO Interconnected Libraries, or GIL, is an extension of the GALILEO initiative funded by the Governor and the General Assembly of the state of Georgia to enhance and expand educational opportunities for the citizens of Georgia. The successes that GALILEO has had in leveling the information access opportunities for the citizens of Georgia are being extended to University System’s Libraries through GIL by providing students, faculty and staff expanded access to the information resources of the University System’s Libraries.

The GIL Users Group Meeting provides the opportunity for institutions using the Voyager ILS to gather and exchange information with their peers. GIL users are dedicated to excellence, using their creativity to solve problems and address user needs, and the GUGM 2015 theme, Collaboration and Convergence, recognizes this flexibility and resourcefulness, and encourages the USG community to come together to share unique approaches to working in a collaborative and continually changing environment.

GUGM’s agenda (which will be available before Registration opens) includes non-Voyager topics. You do not have to be a University System of Georgia (USG) library or a Voyager user to attend. Other libraries interested in attending are welcome.
