Lincoln Trail Libraries System is pleased to announce a premiere conference, The Symposium on the Future of Integrated Library Systems. Join us September 13-15, 2007 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Champaign, IL for an opportunity to listen, learn, and talk to nationally-recognized speakers discussing the challenges and changes within the Integrated Library System landscape. Discover the changes that are happening now and why these changes impact how we must plan for the future.
