Here are the 2015 Annual Meeting Agenda-Minutes. You can find the presentation slides and PDFs on our Members Only page. We had some terrific special guest speakers this year and a full agenda with our final closeout for the five year project. Ontime and under budget  FTW!

HS InFocus is grateful for the opportunity to work with such a wonderful group of librarians. The future of Library Connectivity is going to be just as busy and exciting as the past 10 years have been. We have made a real impact – we work smarter when we work together
