Program Submissions

The Ohio Library Council offers a wide range of educational opportunities for its members. The OLC issues a “Call for Programs” when planning most of these events and accepts submissions from individuals from both inside and outside the library community. If you have an idea for a professional development offering, please use the Idea Box or Webinar Submission Form.


The OLC is accepting program submissions for the 2021 Convention and Expo which is scheduled for Oct. 13-15 at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Columbus. The deadline for submitting program proposals is Feb. 1, 2021.

We want your ideas! Let us know what you would like to see from OLC’s professional development offerings. It can be as simple as a word or as complex as a paragraph. However, please be specific. For example, instead of entering “Donations,” use “How to get donations” or “What to do with donations.” If you already have a program that you would like to present, please use the General Submission Form above.
