Outreach Services

The Illinois State Library serves its main clientele—state employees, government and elected officials of the State of Illinois—with library reference services and resources. Reference staff travel to a Springfield agency office or conduct a webinar for statewide locations. The presentations focus on an overview of services, how to obtain a library card online, remote access to databases, reference assistance and map library services. There is ample time for questions and answers.

INFORM, a bi-monthly newsletter highlighting library services and materials is also sent to all card holders.
