All RAILS member library staff are encouraged to attend this quarterly update session to hear the latest RAILS news and to share their library news.

Topics include:

  • RAILS' efforts to update our strategic plan-attendees will be invited to give input on library needs/challenges you would like RAILS to address as we update our plan

  • Free e-resources available to anyone in Illinois through RAILS' partnership with BiblioLabs and how your library can get started using these resources

  • Latest news about our overlay project (Find More Illinois)

  • Latest news about our planned museum/cultural attraction pass program (Explore More Illinois)

  • System membership standards

You can attend at an available RAILS videoconference location to network with other attendees.

You can also participate via streaming video (register for RAILS Live). The update will also be recorded for viewing at a later date.

Those participating via RAILS Live can provide feedback via the chat window on the right side of the screen at any time during the session.

Note: If you experience problems with the RAILS Live video stream (freezing, stuttering, etc.), hover over the video player, click the "HD" icon, and select a lower resolution.
