John Brogan is working to find, and blur, the border between art and science. A senior at Case Western Reserve University, Brogan has already become a seasoned traveler, authored two books and partnered with the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo for a research project. Brogan is studying cognitive science, which he describes as a blend of psychology and philosophy, taken within the lens of a hard science.
Brooklyn Ludlow is one of two student interns currently working at OhioLINK. As a third-year student at The Ohio State University, she has two rare and vastly different passions: Brooklyn is earning a major in jazz composition and a minor in computer information sciences.
Before coming to OSU, Brooklyn and a friend had their own business doing live sound setup for bands and events. They used their own equipment and worked as sound and lighting engineers and DJs.
OhioLINK is excited to welcome Judith Cobb to our team as the Digital Curation Coordinator. This position will work closely with the Manager of Member and User Services to ensure long-term access to digital content managed by OhioLINK. In her new position, Cobb will manage OhioLINK’s implementation of the Ex Libris Rosetta digital preservation platform and develop related policies and procedures.
Christine Raber, Ph.D., can truly say her use of OhioLINK resources has real-life application. A professor of Shawnee State University’s Master of Occupational Therapy program, Raber specializes in the rehabilitation of dementia patients. More specifically, she researches strategies and opportunities that can motivate persons with dementia to use their abilities to stay connected and engaged in life. She has presented her research at international forums in the UK, Sweden, and Japan. Raber also supervises service-learning experiences in nursing homes and assisted living facilities.
Anita Cook, a long-term employee of OhioLINK, is currently serving a half-time position somewhere very different from Ohio – in sunny Las Vegas, Nevada.
Anita comes from a very extensive background in libraries after having 37 years of experience, 22 of which were at OhioLINK as the full time Coordinator of OhioLINK Catalogs. She has a Master of Arts in Librarianship from the University of Denver and a Master of Arts in Information Systems from the University of Nebraska.
Undeniably, researchers can appreciate OhioLINK’s vast stockpile of literature from around the world, but perhaps none so much as Xavier University’s Suparna Chatterjee, an assistant professor who seeks to understand the unequal geographies of globalization. Her work culminates information from economics, history, business and anthropology, to name a few, to study how ideas spread and impact the lives of people across the globe.
“I like to see how concepts and ideas travel, what is added and lost in its translation across social and spatial divides,” Chatterjee said.
Gwen Evans, OhioLINK’s executive director, certainly has an impressive (and extensive) background of knowledge, which ranges from ancient and medieval history to cultural anthropology.
Evans previously served as the director of special projects at the Ohio Technology Consortium (OH-TECH). She came to OH-TECH from her position as associate professor and coordinator of Library Information and Emerging Technology at Bowling Green State University.

OhioLINK is pleased to announce the selection of the Ex Libris Rosetta digital management and preservation solution.

Amy Pawlowski is OhioLINK’s deputy director and eResources licensing coordinator, though she claims she likes to think of herself as OhioLINK’s .exe file. Amy holds two degrees in music performance, which are a unique contrast to her master’s degree in library information science from Kent State University.
