2017 Chapter Event-of-the-Year Award!

The Central Ohio Chapter is pleased to announce that it has been awarded ASIS&T’s Chapter Event-of-the-Year Award for its “2017 Summer of Tours”!

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.

We would like to thank everyone who participated in this event throughout the summer, especially our hosts:

  • Megan Dimmerling [Library Media Center at Thomas Elementary in Dublin]
  • Pat Connor and Lisa Elliott [S.E.A. Ltd. Library]
  • Laura Simonds [Operations Center at Columbus Metropolitan Library]
  • Peter Veracka and Beverly Lane [A.T. Wehrle Memorial Library at the Pontifical College Josephinum]
  • Morag Boyd, Cate Putirskis, and Jennifer Schnabel [Special Collections Description & Access at the Ohio State University Libraries]
