With July now gone and with the dust settling from ALA and our very own RDA 4 Everyone conference, I’ve had time to bring myself up to speed with the latest announcement from Amazon. In case you haven’t heard, let’s jump right in and take a look!
I was honored to be selected for Library Leadership Ohio 2014. This year's intensive, 3-day retreat featured some amazing speakers from all across the country, including past-ALA president Barbara Stripling, members of Ivy Library Consultants, and Nate Hill, Deputy Director at Chattanooga Public Library. Check out Chattanooga's 4th Floor if you want to feel inspired about ways to use library space.
McGraw-Hill Medical User Services will present a webinar series on their "Access" line of medical resources in August. Among the highlights, they'll show how to use the new federated search feature to search multiple Access sites. They will also demonstrate how to use premier texts and the collection of videos and diagnostic tools in the Access products.
Since spring and summer have zoomed by, did you miss the July deadline for the Rittenhouse discount offer? No worries. OHIONET members now have through September 30th for these exceptional savings on Rittenhouse health science eBooks and print books from 60 STM publishers.

Fifty participants from libraries around Ohio are gathering at the Holiday Inn-Worthington on July 22-25, 2014 to participate in the Library Leadership Ohio Institute. This three-day institute, facilitated by the Ivy Group, will form leaders who will work together for the benefit of all Ohio libraries and the communities they serve and help guide Ohio libraries into the twenty-first century as they solve the issues facing our libraries and communities.
Time is running out to take advantage of OHIONET's group offer for Mango Languages for academic libraries.
OHIONET has been working with Mango since the transition of Mango Languages from statewide contract in July 2013. Several schools have become a part of our group, and we are working with Mango to provide opportunity for more schools to join this year.
