OHIONET Announces 2014 Library Leadership Ohio Scholarship Recipient

OHIONET is proud to announce the recipient of our Library Leadership Ohio scholarship for the Class of 2014: Julie Albert of The Columbus Dispatch Editorial Library.

In its role as the largest multi-type, state-wide library consortium in the State of Ohio, it is important to OHIONET to develop the strong future of our state's libraries, and to increase the communication and cooperation among libraries of every type.

Save the Date! Plan to Join OHIONET for “RDA 4 Everyone” in Columbus on 7/10/14

RDA 4 Everyone is a day-long, multi-type conference centered on the much-debated, long-awaited new cataloging standard, Resource Description and Access.  And, guess what?  It’s not just about new MARC record fields. And, it impacts more than just your materials-processing workflow.  RDA represents a revolution in how libraries think about documenting AND accessing the resources we provide for users--a big step toward a linked data future! 

Library Leadership: Leading from the FRONT!

Thanks to everyone who read February's note about COOL! It’s really neat to be able to help our member libraries with shared ILS systems, resource sharing, and more!

This month, I thought it might be helpful to step back and talk about something not quite so technology oriented: Library Leadership! While it seems that most of the discussion in the library world these days centers on technology, the fact remains that library management plays a major role in the success or failure of the library as an organization.

Congratulations to Participants Selected for Library Leadership Ohio 2014

The State Library of Ohio and OHIONET are pleased to announce the group of developing leaders selected to participate in Library Leadership Ohio 2014. Participants were carefully chosen based on their outstanding leadership potential; excellent communication skills; successful library employment experience; initiative, commitment and reasonable risk taking; forward-thinking approach to problem solving, and; a commitment to the profession.
