Ohio Depositories’ Influence

We hope in this meeting to create a document for the Depository Council, presenting the outcome of our discussions to help them make decisions based on our “carrots” to add or keep and removal of our “barnacles”. We hope to have lively discussions and brainstorming to create ideas that will help us operate in the future with physical and electronic government information dissemination.
