Look what ALA sent over

ALA Award Isn’t this a lovely bonus? As you may remember, the American Library Association awarded us the H. W. Wilson Library Staff Development grant that was used to provide the supervisory track of classes at the 2015 Institute. This nearly five-foot sign documents that award and will make a great addition to our display whenever we go out to promote ourselves. Thank you, ALA!

If you’re at the ALAO Annual Conference in November, stop by our table to see it!

Thank you!


As another great OLSSI has come and gone, we hope that you, our attendees, found the classes informative and returned to work refreshed and energized.

We thank our generous and insightful presenters for sharing their knowledge with us! And, of course, thank you to all of our attendees, who make running OLSSI such a joy for us. We’re already looking forward to seeing you again next year, July 24 – 26, 2016, at Ohio Northern!

Officer Election Results

This year’s elections are complete! The race was, thankfully, far more congenial than for our federal candidates.

The winners are:
Jennifer Jean McCoy Ziegler : Vice-Chair of Programming

They’ll take office in September. Congratulations to all three!
