Funding for this grant was provided by the Illinois State Library, a division of the Illinois Office of Secretary of State, using federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funding. The Ready for Reference project uses the eGain web call center software, as modified and marketed by Library Systems and Services, Inc. (LSSI).
