If you attended the 2016 Ohio Library Council Convention & Expo this September, you may still be basking in the afterglow of gentle Sandusky breezes and memorable professional contacts. But don’t get too sleepy—2017 is just around the corner, with chapter conferences and new opportunities to come!
The Technical Services Division has several program offerings on tap for 2017 Chapter Conferences, happening March through May around Ohio:
- Fifty Shades of Genre: Understanding and Taking Advantage of Form/Genre Headings
- Getting to Know Your Catalog
- Helping the Tech-Resistant Patron
- Respect Your Authorities! Authority Records Demystified
Bookmark the OLC webpage for Chapter Conference details as they develop.
You say you want to get involved? Now is the time to plan! Program proposals for the 2017 Convention & Expo—LIBRARIES IN BALANCE, October 4-6 at the Dayton Convention Center—are being accepted through February 13. Your Action Council members are always looking for timely topics and willing presenters to explore the many facets of library technical services. Please contact a TS Division member if you have an idea!
Best wishes as we near the close of 2016 …
