This is your meeting. What would you like to learn, discuss, and share?  We are soliciting ideas from you, the library community, to build a compelling and worthwhile program. Don’t hesitate to send in a partially formed idea, we’d love to get as many ideas as possible from the users. We'll review them all. Some topics already submitted include:
o Details on the next steps with Intota.
o Digging into and leveraging all aspects of functionality overall for Acquisitions, Description and Delivery modules to ensure users are getting the most out of existing features. (not training on how each page works)
o Preparing teams for, and working through, a migration to Intota from library staff who are working through it right now.
o Reviewing usage statistics and making sure dashboards are giving us the best insights. How to become more efficient and insightful using the data.
o User Experience and Discovery - Examples of how others are customizing their programs to be the most effective in discovering resources for the researcher
These 45 minute sessions can be what resonates with you: case studies, success stories on library transformation leveraging ProQuest systems, suggestions for training, panel discussions and more. Please include your name so we can follow-up. Submissions for sessions will be reviewed by a group of users from ProQuest Development Partners, the Beta testing community and the Users' Group Steering Committee. 
Tell us your ideas and submit your proposals today. https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ProQuest_User_Summit
 Help us make the User Summit a valuable experience for everyone.   See you in Chicago!
