2016 IUG Enhancement Voting

As a member of IUG, University Libraries is eligible to vote for 2016 IUG Enhancement ballot items.  As IUG liaison I’m the person designated to complete the ballot. Based on your input I’ll cast votes in each of the categories that are applicable to our Sierra system.

2016 IUG Enhancement Ballot:


  • Below are the page numbers for the functional areas applicable to our Sierra system set-up. Look over the ballot items in each section that corresponds to the function(s) you use in Sierra.
  • Select up to the maximum number of ballot items allowed in each functional section. Copy and paste the Ballot # into a list. Examples: ACQ-1 Funds, CIR-40 Patron Record.
  • Some sections may be of interest to all: Create Lists, Core Functionality, WebPac, Statistics and Reporting
  • Once you have completed your list(s) of ballot items, send them to me by 12:00 pm (noon) on Monday 2/29.
