A Note From the Executive Director

If you have an exciting technology-related project that you would like to share with your colleagues, then we have a great opportunity for you! Whether you have completed a project, are in the process of a project, or are just beginning the planning phase, you can present your efforts and achievements in a poster session during the 2022 Technology Conference: The IT Factor. Poster sessions are a great way to promote your work, inspire other library staff, and boost your resume!  
The Details: 
  • Posters will be displayed throughout the conference and there will be a designated time, during lunch, for you to discuss your poster with attendees. During this time, you can present a very brief (2-5) minute "elevator pitch" of your work and allow attendees to ask questions.  
  • Poster topics should be related to technology but we encourage topics from all departments and areas of library work. 
  • Attendees will have an opportunity to vote for their favorite posters and prizes will be awarded at the end of the conference. 
  • Be creative and have fun! 
If you would like to present a poster session, please click HERE to fill out our form for submission. * 
The Dates: 
Deadline for submission:  October 17, 2022 
Conference Information: Tuesday, October 25, 2022 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Twinsburg, OH. 
Visit the Event Page for more information and to register for the conference. 
*All submissions will be accepted. Submission form will guarantee a space for your poster.

Registration for ODNFest 2022 is open!
Scheduled for Tuesday, October 11th, this free and virtual event will feature national and Ohio-based speakers, with added insight from the work of neighboring DPLA contributors and research experts working in archives and digital collections.
While the last of our guests are being finalized, we are thrilled to announce keynote speaker Dr. Trevor Owens. Dr. Owens’ resume is bursting with experience, but these quotes from his website say it best: 
 The 2022 Buckeye Children’s and Teen Book Awards voting period is September 1 through November 10. Buckeye Book Award voting takes place online at There is a button for students to vote directly, and a button for teachers and librarians who collect student votes and wish to submit them in bulk.
Consider setting up a display of Buckeye Book Award nominated titles as well as past winners, reaching out to teachers, and posting to your social media to encourage students to vote.
Greetings from the Collaborative Summer Library Program annual meeting. The CSLP state reps voted their states’ choices for 2025 program slogan and 2026 program theme. I’m pleased to share that the overall winners were the same as the winners in the Ohio vote:
The slogan for the 2025 ART-themed CSLP summer program with artwork by Brian Floca will be Color Our World.
The theme for the 2026 program will be dinosaurs.
