You will learn how the IDS Project is advancing library excellence through the integration of ILL and Acquisitions/Collection Development operations (GIST); an unmediated ILL article request system (ALIAS); a powerful resource sharing based search engine (IDS Search); real time monitoring system of all borrowing and lending transactions (TPAM); the Workflow Toolkit; a Mentoring Program; and an exciting, low-cost annual conference.
