Mandatory Annual Library Certification Process Now Underway

Each year, all Illinois library system member libraries (including all CARLI libraries) must complete the Illinois State Library’s mandatory library certification in order to qualify for State Library system services, programs and grants. The certification must be completed by March 31, 2015.

To begin the certification process, visit the certification web page. The certification web page includes links to questions included in the certification form; the online annual library certification portal; and the timeline and FAQs. Each library will need its control number and administrative branch number to log in to the certification portal. This information is included in each library’s record in the L2 membership database.
