About the Summit

Please join us on May 31st for the second annual OhioLINK Summit! Recommended by the Reframing OhioLINK Committees Task Force, the Summit is an annual information gathering and sharing event for staff from OhioLINK member institutions. Participants are encouraged to share ideas, brainstorm on future initiatives and desired services, and participate in discussions about OhioLINK resources, policies, and procedures and their impact on member institutions.
