Indiana Online Users Group Archives Digitized and Available in the DMR

The Indiana Online Users Group (IOLUG) is a professional organization for techie-librarians, or anyone interested in electronic information access systems. They recently deposited their paper archives with Ball State University Archives and Special Collections, and a portion of the organization's nearly 30 year history is now available and fully searchable in the Digital Media Repository.

The Indiana Online Users Group Archives digital collection provides online access to the organization's newsletter, IOLUG News, from 1982 to 2011. Editions of IOLUG News often contain information about and schedules for IOLUG events and activities; important announcements for group members; reports from the group's board, committees, and president; and articles, reports, and commentary about projects and professional issues.

Founded in 1982, IOLUG is an organization established for the purpose of furthering the use of online systems, databases, computers and telecommunication systems in libraries. Each year they provide a spring and a fall conference, centering on timely themes for libraries in the digital age, such as cloud computing, mobile applications, digitization, and much more.
