Fusion and FusionPlus have arrived! New webpac! New options!

Ok everyone who has been at Indiana State University since 1985: THERE IS NO MORE LUIS! Yes, through several opacs, we have been luis.indstate.edu for 25 years! That’s going to be a hard one to shake – attention, faculty: be sure to take out of your Syllabus/assignments all mention of LUIS. Now, it’s FUSION!
