Partnership Strengthens Common Purpose and Community

On August 2, fifteen K-12 schools and the Columbus State Library celebrated the first year of their Building Bridges venture.  After a year of dialog and school visits, the event held at Columbus State featured a discussion of the issues that K-12 and college libraries face when supporting College Credit + students, a guest speaker from the Tutoring/Writing Center, as well as an introduction to the university databases that students are expected to use to complete their coursework.  Everyone agreed that the partnership has been a success, especially for its collaborative exchange of ideas. Lorena Popelka, Reference and Instruction Librarian at Columbus State coordinated the initiative and shared that the "strong relationships allow academic and K-12 libraries to share programming ideas, cultivate instructor relationships and jointly advocate for student information literacy needs when policy decisions are made."  Participants were also able to renew their Columbus State database access for the upcoming 2018-2019 school year, as well as welcome 2 more partners. Estimates are that College Credit Plus student involvement will increase to over 6,000 students at 77 schools in Columbus State's service area for this Fall semester. The group will be sharing their experiences and inviting broader discussion about expanding academic and K-12 partnerships at the upcoming ALAO and OELMA conferences.

Coping with Copyright Questions in Your Library
October 18th, 2018 from 3:00PM-4:00PM EST

If you'd like to send us your copyright questions in advance: ohionet@ohionet.org

Libraries play a central role in the health and well-being of the communities they serve.  But, as we consider how to respond to the challenges we see, remember that we don’t have to go it alone.  During the “Resources in Your Backyard” session, attendees at any of the upcoming Opioids in Communities, Libraries in Response events will have the chance to hear from local representatives of Project DAWN—a community-based overdose education and naloxone distribution program.  Staff from Project DAWN will share information about local and regional resources as well as how to spot the signs of an opioid overdose.

For additional information, and to register, click here: https://www.ohionet.org/librariesinresponse.  Follow the events on Facebook and Twitter via #LibrariesRespond.

These programs are made possible thanks to an LSTA grant from the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), awarded by the State Library of Ohio.
