The IUG meets two times per year: at ALA Midwinter and at the annual IUG Conference in the spring. A half-day program is scheduled on the Friday afternoon before ALA Midwinter officially begins. IUG no longer formally meets at the ALA Annual Conference. The main IUG conference is held each spring.
Each annual conference consists of a one-day Pre-Conference for new users and three days for all users. Over 140 sessions are held throughout the conference ranging from general interest to specialized topics. Ample opportunities are given to meet and share ideas with other librarians from all types of libraries and from around the world. Programs are prepared by individuals from member libraries and members of the Innovative Interfaces staff. Vendors who have products which work with Innovative's system are invited to exhibit and share in some programs. Guidelines are available on the IUG web site for those persons who would like to present a program at the annual conference.
All conferences are open to customers of Innovative Interfaces. Potential customers of Innovative should contact their sales representatives if they wish to attend.
Conference locations vary from year to year. We explore potential venues with the goal of ensuring that our conferences are spread around the United States, yet keeping it affordable for libraries and librarians.
