The image of Ohio’s public, school, and academic libraries working toward a common goal of collaboration will become a reality on Fri., June 14, at the OCLC Conference Center in northwest Columbus when the OLC, Academic Library Association of Ohio (ALAO) and Ohio Education Library Media Association (OELMA) will present Re-IMAGEing Ohio’s Libraries.
This one-day event will feature programs and experiences intended to improve Ohio’s library workforce, facilitate partnerships, and support initiatives that improve the capacity of librarians and library staff to improve their knowledge and skills. Conference participants will have opportunities to talk with other library staffs outside of their usual networks, learn what other types of libraries are doing, and explore mutual benefits across different types of libraries.
