New Spaces and Places in the Ohio State University Libraries

Catch a glimpse of the future and plan to join us for the May luncheon meeting of the Central Ohio Chapter of the American Society for Information Science and Technology on Thursday, May 5th, 2005 at the Fawcett Conference Center in Columbus, Ohio.

Our honored speaker is Joe Branin, Director of Libraries for The Ohio State University, whose topic will be:

“New Spaces and Places in the Ohio State University Libraries” 

In this presentation, Mr. Branin will describe how Ohio State University Libraries and other research libraries are responding to changes in the information technology, higher education, and public funding environments. Particular focus will be devoted to two projects: Ohio State’s Knowledge Bank Project to collect and preserve the digital assets of the University, and the major renovation of the William Oxley Thompson Library, OSU’s grand, historic Main Library at the center of campus.

This is a great opportunity to meet Mr. Branin and to find out more about the Ohio State Libraries today.
