This is my first reminder about the opening for registration for IUG 2007 in San Jose. We are working on getting the final program in place and Nancy Fleck (IUG Vice Chair) will have information about this by the middle of the month.
We changed the IUG 2007 main page to include the dates when the program information will be available. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at cseeman at umich dot edu dot
Also remember that the program material will be (as in the past few years) behind the IUG password. Feel free to contact me if you have questions about your IUG membership or if you need your password.
Hotel information and rates is available at this page: http://www.innovativeusers.org/iug2007/hotel.html

I am pleased to announce that online registration for the 15th Annual Innovative Users Group Conference to be held May 2007 in San Jose, California is now available at: http://www.innovativeusers.org/iug2007/registration.html. Early bird registration will take place from Jan. 30 through Feb. 28th. Early bird registrants will be entered into a raffle for seven free 2007 conference registrations [2 for U.S. members and 5 for international members].
You will need your IUG member number and III site code in order to register. Please see the registration page for details on how to obtain these numbers. Non-IUG members should register directly with Kathy O'Gorman, IUG Financial Consultant kathy at innovativeusers dot org dot If you need your password, please email me (cseeman at umich dot edu) or use this form:
The conference dates are as follows:
IUG Pre-Conference & Innovative Workshops: Monday May 14, 2007
IUG Main Conference: Tuesday May 15-Thursday May 17, 2007
The IUG Pre-Conference is a virtual boot camp for using the Innovative System, intended for staff from new libraries, staff who have assumed or taken new responsibilities with systems management, or staff who need a refresher on how it all works. The sessions are smaller and are geared to getting your library up and running. Like the main conference, the pre-conference has sessions provided by both Innovative and IUG members.
The morning III workshop will be "Disaster Recovery Seminar: How to use your system to help recover collections and/or operations.", and the afternoon session will be "Collection Development - using your Millennium system for analyzing your collection, selecting material and weeding." Each Innovative workshop is limited to 250 participants, so be sure to register in advance. For more information on the Innovative Workshops, please visit: http://www.innovativeusers.org/iug2007/faq.html#precon.
The main conference will take place from Tuesday May 15th through Thursday May 17th. A preliminary schedule and program information will be available in mid-February. At that time Nancy Fleck, IUG Program Chair and IUG Vice Chair/Chair Elect will invite you to participate in the 2nd program interest survey. Please let us know the programs you tentatively plan to attend so that we may assign the programs to appropriately sized rooms.
One Day Registration
We are creating a new program this year as a pilot to introduce one-day registration for the IUG Conference. Only the last day, Thursday May 17th, will be possible if you wish to register for one-day. The last day normally has a repeats of the most popular programs, so it makes the most sense for a one-day program. We are hoping to create a new way to allow people who might not otherwise be allowed to go to the meeting because of the cost or time commitment. We will assess the program after the fact to see if it should be repeated down the road. For more information on the One-Day Registration, please follow this link:
