We are glad to welcome Wellsville Carnegie Public Library

The Wellsville Carnegie Public Library is located in Columbiana County. The library began when a small group of townspeople established a reading room and lending library in a store front on Main Street. Expenses were met by selling shares, as well as holding rummage sales, suppers and concerts. Some funds were received from donations. The first records for the new library were kept in 1908. By 1910 the library had a collection of 1,535 books.

Property on the corner of Main and Ninth Streets, originally belonging to Gen. James Reilly, was given to the city by the State of Ohio to be used for a public library. In 1916 the mayor appointed a board of trustees to manage the library and to apply to the Carnegie Trust Corporation for funds to build a library. The Carnegie Trust Corporation approved the application and awarded a total of $9,427 for the construction of the building. It was dedicated and opened to the public on November 20, 1917.

While the services offered by the library continued to grow, the building itself remained unchanged. By the early 1980s, the board began planning for the renovation and expansion of the library. It was not until 1998 that the plans became a reality. The library received a bequest of $711,000 from the estate of Helen McSweeney Miskall. Construction on the project began in July 1998. The new facility was dedicated May 23, 1999.

The OHIONET Board of Trustees honored Tom Sanville at their December 5th Board meeting by presenting Mr. Sanville with a resolution exemplifying his cooperative efforts and dedication to the library community.

In the 32 years that Mr. Sanville was active in the library profession, his path was closely intertwined with OHIONET. OHIONET began working with Mr. Sanville during his tenure as Vice President of Marketing for OCLC, and the relationship between OHIONET and Mr. Sanville continued during his tenure as Executive Director of OhioLINK.

During that time, the capacities for service to Ohio’s libraries were greatly increased by the cooperative efforts of OhioLINK and OHIONET, as OHIONET worked closely with OhioLINK and its Cooperative Information Resources Management Committee (CIRM) to coordinate opt-in groups for research content. Likewise, OHIONET's participation in the International Coalition of Library Consortia, which was greatly guided by the efforts of Mr. Sanville from its inception in the mid 1990's, has added to the collective influence of that group and of OHIONET's stature among publishers

In recognition of that common work, and in recognition of Mr. Sanville's dedication, professionalism, and commitment to sustainable publishing models for scholarship and research, the OHIONET Board of Trustees made a formal resolution to honor Mr. Sanville's retirement in December, and Board and Staff alike reminisced with him over the many events and changes through the last thirty-two years.

Please join OHIONET in wishing Tom Sanville the best of luck as he begins a new chapter in his well-deserved retirement.

Since the announcement of the retirement of our long-time Electronic Resource Coordinator, Mary Conroy, OHIONET has been working to make the transition for our members as smooth as possible.

We are pleased to announce that we will be working with a new staffing configuration for Electronic Resource support, and we think that it will help to leverage the size and multi-type nature of our consortium to improve pricing and opportunities for our members.

Starting in January, Carrie Waibel will be assuming a new role of Electronic Resource Specialist for our members.  That means that Carrie will take the lead with vendor negotiations and communications about OHIONET eResource opportunities.

Jill Boggs Brust will be our new Member Order Specialist.  She will be using her expertise in our membership and her many years of experience with library equipment and supplies to take care of the order fulfillment of new and renewing electronic resources.

Together, Carrie and Jill will be working as a team to help you meet your needs for electronic content in the most economical and efficient ways possible.  You can contact them at e-resources@ohionet.org or 800-686-8975.

It is with mixed emotions that we announce the retirement of Mary Mlynar Conroy on December 31, 2014.

Mary has been with OHIONET for more than 28 years of service, and her dedication to the profession and OHIONET members is a true inspiration for all of us.

Her contributions were integral to the early successes of OHIONET. Mary began her work with OHIONET as the coordinator of Ohio Public Information Online System (Ohio Pi/PINS), which included a directory of organizations, a legislative database, and a statistics database. As the landscape of library information services changed, Mary launched into the role of Member Services Coordinator, assisting OHIONET libraries with OCLC services and the first reference databases for libraries--in both CD-ROM and online formats--and was among the first consortia-based negotiators for these services on behalf of libraries.

Mary held other positions during her career at OHIONET, including Library Services and Technologies Coordinator and Electronic Resources Coordinator. She facilitated member interaction with various User Groups and Advisory Councils. Mary was likewise active with the Academic Library Association of Ohio (ALAO), serving on the planning committee for their annual conference, and she has been a life-long member of the Special Library Association (SLA), and served as President and Treasurer of the Central Ohio chapter of the SLA, as well as maintaining membership in the American Library Association (ALA), Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL), the Ohio Health Sciences Library Association (OHSLA), and ALAO.

Mary has been devoted in her career to the information needs of academic and special libraries, but she has also been a champion of cross-type library cooperation. She was among the leaders of the Ohio Council for Library and Information Services (OCLIS), a forerunner of many other cross-type collaborative groups within Ohio. We owe her a debt of gratitude for those efforts, in particular.

Mary will be keeping in touch via Twitter and Facebook, and she welcomes your continued conversation via e-mail at librarian.mary@gmail.com.

Please join us in celebrating Mary's accomplishments and honoring the occasion of her retirement from OHIONET.
