This is an overview of the Association of Bookmobile and Outreach Services and the organization project, Bookmobile and Outreach Information Repository. The aim of the BOIR project is to archive, unify and further bookmobile and library outreach services worldwide with a multipurpose database tool. Upon completion, the database will be a valuable resource to those planning future library services and also be available as an ongoing educational tool for libraries, students, researchers, the media and all those interested in library services. This project is currently moving into Phase 2 - BETA testing. Much needed fundraising is ongoing as well as the search for educational partnerships. It is our intent to update poster session attendees on the progress of this important project.
