IHLS Funding News!

Earlier this month IHLS received $626,746 of its FY2016 Area and Per Capita Grant Funding. This first payment brings us to about 31% of the total $1,989,670.48 allocation for FY2016. As a reminder, in FY2016 our System Area and Per Capita funding was reduced to 58% due to the state budget crisis. 
 
Many thanks to Anne Craig (Director, Illinois State Library) and Jesse White (Illinois Secretary of State and State Librarian) for their continued support.

Upcoming ILDS Delivery Changes

Illinois Library Delivery Service (ILDS) is the courier service that distributes library materials between academic libraries (who are members of Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois…CARLI) and the Illinois Library Systems (IHLS, RAILS and CPL). Since it is a courier service, periodically that contract has a Request for Proposal (RFP) managed by the University of Illinois Procurement Division. The current contract for the ILDS expires on June 30, 2016.
