About Us

For all libraries—no matter how big or small

We are a membership-driven organization serving libraries and information centers of all types and sizes throughout Ohio, West Virginia and western Pennsylvania.  By providing innovative technology solutions, products, training and consulting, we support our members' efforts to meet the needs of the diverse communities they serve.

 

Partnering for Progress

Beginning in 1977 with 103 members, we have grown to serve more than 300 today.  Through a long history of partnership with other organizations like the State Library of Ohio, OhioLINK, OPLIN, INFOhio, OEMLAALAO, the Ohio Library Council and Kent State University's School of Library and Information Science, we explore opportunities for pooling resources, sharing skills, and creating collaborations to help all libraries become indispensable resources for their communities.
