The State Library of Ohio

(See schedule below.)

The program for the spring meeting will feature a potpourri of speakers who will touch on current issues facing depository librarians during this electronic transition.

Joe Salem, Government Documents, Kent State University Library, will lead off with a report of his graduate research project at Kent, which studied the attitudes toward using the World Wide Web as a source of government information.

Karen Kimber, Wright State University, will review a Census workshop, held recently at Cleveland State University, which covered plans and products for the 2000 Population and Housing Census and the 1997 Economic Census. Continuing the focus on government information at the state level will be

Ron Amstutz, member of the Ohio House of Representatives (7th District) and current candidate for the office of state Senator. Mr. Amstutz will share with us his perspective on and involvement with the use of technology to provide citizens further access to state information and resources. His visit should also provide us with an opportunity to articulate the need for state information in our libraries.

There will also be reports from the recent Depository Library Council meeting in Newport and the Digital Library workshop at Case.
