Abstracts for papers to be presented at the 12th Interlending and Document Supply Conference (ILDS) are now online at www.ilds2011.org/index.php?show=papers. The ILDS Conference is scheduled for 19 - 21 September 2011 in Chicago. Full program information, online registration, and other conference details such as hotel accommodations and social events are available at www.ilds2011.org

What is the ILDS Conference? It is a meeting of interlibrary loan (ILL) and resource sharing professionals from around the globe and is jointly sponsored by IFLA's Document Delivery and Resource Sharing Section and the American Library Association.Participants will discuss the latest developments in ILL: new technologies, cost studies, sharing digital resources, and strategies for improving transborder ILL. The program also will venture far beyond the confines of traditional ILL and discuss other forms of resource sharing, from cooperative collection development ventures to shared storage facilities to purchase-on-demand programs.

Register on or before July 15 to get the discounted rate: $375 US for IFLA or ALA members, $425 US for non-members. Registration includes admission to all program sessions, lunches, coffee breaks, and an all-conference dinner at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art. After July 15, registration increases to $450 US (members) and $500 US (non-members) - but don’t wait that long because conference attendance is capped at 400 participants.

All sessions will take place at the Spertus Institute of Jewish Studies, centrally located on South Michigan Avenue just steps from the heart of Chicago's cultural scene. The Spertus Institute boasts breathtaking views of Grant Park, Millennium Park, Lake Michigan, and one of the city's most beloved landmarks, Buckingham Fountain.

So buy your ticket, pack your bags, and head to Chicago for the 12th Interlending and Document Supply Conference on 19 – 21 September 20
