Due to the increasing number of libraries using IDS Logic, IDS Project is now using LibAnswers to collect trouble tickets and questions regarding IDS Logic.  In the past, libraries have emailed Bill Jones directly for support.  In order to provide better support for IDS Logic, additional support personnel will now be answering your questions.

All questions emailed to Bill Jones regarding IDS Logic will now be forwarded to LibAnswers.  In your best interest and for a faster response, make sure that you send your IDS Logic inquiries to the following email address:


The IDS Project Online Mentor Institute begins today!  We have five Mentors-in-Training and they will be participating in the course until the end of the year.  Graduating mentors will be announced at next year’s conference.


The IDS Project is excited to invite attendees to our Fall User Group Sessions!  A day of training, discussion, and collaboration can aid in the essential service we provide to our students and patrons.
