Two heads are better than one

ILLINET stands for Illinois Library Information Network; OCLC stands for Online Computer Library Center. Together, the two have created a link to better serve libraries in Illinois. In 1977, the Illinois State Library received a Library Services and Construction Act grant to incorporate OCLC into the State Library organizational structure, resulting in the establishment of ILLINET/OCLC Services. Today, funding and administration of the program is included as part of the annual budget of the State Library.

ILLINET/OCLC Services offers a variety of benefits for today's libraries. Workshops are held throughout the year. One-on-one training (for members willing to travel to Springfield) and distance learning opportunities are available throughout the year. They also partner with the Illinois OCLC Users' Group to provide workshops at nominal costs.
