Please join us for the 19th annual GIL Users Group Meeting (GUGM) May 16 at the Robert F. Hatcher, Sr. Conference Center on the campus of Middle Georgia State University in Macon. A pre-conference workshop will take place on May 15.
This year’s GUGM theme “Strengthening Connections” focuses on the future of GIL and honors the dedication to excellence, collaboration and partnerships represented by all GIL users.
The annual meeting will highlight the ways users, partners and supporters can harness GIL’s potential by working together, as well as increase and strengthen connections built through GIL and ALMA integration.
It will continue the open-proposal format, and this year’s agenda will reflect the GIL community’s interests and best practices. Session tracks include Access, Acquisitions, Cataloging, Fulfillment, OPAC, and Special Collections.
GALILEO Interconnected Libraries, or GIL, is an extension of the GALILEO initiative, funded by the state of Georgia to enhance and expand educational opportunities for residents.
The success that GALILEO has had in leveling information access opportunities for all Georgians extends to University System Libraries through GIL.
It provides students, faculty and staff expanded access to information resources from all University System Libraries.
