CMCIG 2012 Spring Workshop Save the Date!

Mark your calendars! The CMCIG Spring Workshop hit a major bump in the road this spring and have had to do some scrambling the get it together. It is the same date announced earlier -- Friday, May 18th -- but has changed venue and theme. It will now be held at the State Library of Ohio, 274 East 1st Street, Columbus.

With the theme: The Future of Ohio Libraries, the program will be full of applied technology changes coming down the pike. ALAO Vice-President Sue Polanka will open the day with a presentation about establishing and maintaining an e-reader collection. We will have presentations and begin discussions on using e-readers for kids and access to grade school e-textbooks for our university students. Tours of the State Library and Ohioana Collection will round out the day. Registration information will be posted on the ALAO website shortly.

We look forward to seeing you there and thank you for your patience.
