Welcome to the PUG Web Site! 

Purpose of the Polaris Users Group (PUG)


As stated in the Bylaws, the Polaris Users Group was formed to:

  • Serve as a forum to influence the development and improvement of the Polaris ILS.
  • Offer input to Polaris Library Systems, now Innovative Interfaces Inc. (III), on the development of the Polaris ILS software.
  • Improve communication and relationships among members, and between members and III.
  • Gather and share information on the use of Polaris products among members.
  • Coordinate and prioritize member requests for development, documentation and support by III.
  • Represent the community of Polaris ILS users in dealings with III. The organization is understood to speak for its members and not on behalf of III.
  • Serve as a resource about the Polaris ILS to the general library community

The Polaris Users Group was formed in 2002 as an independent organization of Polaris customers. The activities of the Users Group are coordinated by a Steering Committee elected by the membership.


2016 Membership

Technically your PUG membership expires as of December 31st, 2015.  We never enforce that as it sometimes takes 2-3 months for memberships invoices to be paid.  This year is no exception except we WON’T be sending out renewal invoices.  Instead, PUG will be paying for your IUG membership next year for all current PUG Members.  IUG’s membership year is a rolling 12 month membership so once we export our membership list to them and they input it, your IUG Membership year will start.  This has all been set out in the PUG to IUG Transfer of Assets Agreement that your PUG Voting Representative is voting on now.
