The Scholarship Committee for the 2015 OLSSI conference has reached its consensus. All of the applications for this year’s three H.W. Wilson Scholarships were exceptional – it was a tough decision and a close vote!

Congratulations go out to:

Laura Birkenhaeur, Senior Library Technician, Miami University Libraries
Benjamin Cottom, Reference Librarian, Grafton-Midview Public Library
Sue Smith, Serials Assistant, Westerville Public Library

And there was one more:
Rachel Mathie, Local History/Geneology, Loudonville Public Library

If you did not happen to receive a scholarship this year, you still have time to take advantage of our Early Bird pricing. Register before April 30 to get the $225 rate, which includes your room, your classes, and most meals… we feel it is truly the best deal you’ll find at any conference, anywhere.

We look forward to seeing all of you at Baldwin Wallace University in July!

Having battled technology woes since getting hacked in January, we’re back for good this time!

The links in the grey menu above this have the initial details for this year’s Institute. Note that this year’s scholarship contest is a little different — it covers attendance at a special 4-class track of classes specifically geared toward staff development, and is open to anyone, even if you have attended OLSSI before.

 More to come soon as info is available. And hopefully our appearance here will improve considerably very soon!
