The Summer of Tours offered tours and expert practitioner presentations at five different central Ohio information institutions. Reviewers noted the diversity of these five tours (one associated with a school library, one with a corporate information center, one with a public library, and two with different
academics) that gave exceptional insights into the information professional community in Ohio.
In addition to executing a highly successful five part program, this event created a milestone in ASIS&T and set an example of how ASIS&T could create value for its members at a local level.
