Lynn Ulatowski, a PhD graduate of Case Western Reserve University (CWRU), recently transitioned from her Post-doctoral fellowship with CWRU to continue her research as an assistant professor at Ursuline College. Her Dissertation topic: Regulation of Vitamin E and Tocopherol Transfer protein received the Academic Excellence Award. Ulatowski has dedicated her career to studying how vitamin E moves throughout the human body, particularly in the brain.

OhioLINK is excited to welcome Erin Kilkenny to our team as a part-time cataloging assistant.
It is with deep regret that the Libraries Connect Ohio (LCO) partnership announces the cancellation of the LearningExpress Library (LEL), Job and Career Accelerator, and Workforce Skills for 21st Century Success subscriptions for Ohioans through public, higher education, and K-12 libraries, effective Aug. 10, 2015. As an important part of workforce development efforts in both secondary and post-secondary education, this cut will be an unfortunate loss.
We are pleased to announce the addition of two new members to the consortium: the Cleveland Institute of Music (CIM) and the Cleveland Institute of Art (CIA). Both institutions, previously affiliates of OhioLINK, are now full members and have access to all of the great benefits available through OhioLINK.
Welcome CIM and CIA!
Stefanie Wolf, OhioLINK’s executive assistant, earned her bachelor’s degree from Capital University where she majored in English. In addition to her time at Capital, she spent two years studying abroad at the Center for International Education in Moscow.
