What Sessions Do You Want to See at IUG 2019?

Are you still using tips and tricks from one of this year’s IUG 2018 sessions? Reach out to the presenters and let them know their hard work was appreciated, then consider getting involved in IUG 2019! Our annual, independent Innovative user group conference has been successful for the past 26 years thanks to users like you who present at the conference.

Last year’s most popular user-led sessions were:

  • Data Gone Bad—Finding inaccurate data and cleaning it up before it becomes a problem
  • Using Custom Reports in Circulation and Technical Services
  • A Gentle Introduction to Sierra SQL
  • Patron Privacy in Polaris, Sierra, and Millennium
  • Automating Reports with Python

Program proposal submissions are now open for the IUG 2019 Conference in Phoenix, Arizona. Innovative User Group members can use the Submit a Proposal page on the member website to submit session proposals. The deadline for submissions is November 15, 2018.

If you’ve never been to an IUG annual conference before, then mark your calendar for May 5-8, 2019 in Phoenix, Arizona. The Innovative User Group (IUG) annual conference is a three-day event where you can learn best practices from colleagues, engage with Innovative staff on product development, and network with Innovative users like you.

The IUG is a user-led group, independent of Innovative, and member fees go directly to the user group. If your library is not a member, you can join for only $100 per year (that fee covers all library staff). The benefits of IUG membership include access to the annual conference, program materials from the annual meeting, participation in the Idea Lab product innovation site, access to the Clearinghouse, participation in the IUG forums, and more.
