OhioLINK is pleased to announce the selection of the Ex Libris Rosetta digital management and preservation solution. Rosetta will ensure long-term access to the OhioLINK Electronic Journal Collection (EJC), Electronic Book Collection (EBC), Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETD) Center, and Digital Resource Commons (DRC) collections.
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.
Erin Kilkenny, OhioLINK’s cataloging assistant, earned her undergraduate degree in art history & visual culture from Denison University and is currently working on a Master of Library and Information Science from Kent State University. Erin came to OhioLINK from Southwest Public Libraries, where she was an adult reference assistant.
Erin recently talked with OhioLINK about her goals for after graduation, her passion for dairy and her unexpected bookmark collection.
Meghan Frazer, OhioLINK’s manager of Member and User Services, earned her Master of Library and Information Science from Kent State University and her undergraduate degree in computer and information science from The Ohio State University. Meghan came to OhioLINK from the Knowlton School of Architecture at The Ohio State University, where she managed the digital library and archives.
Meghan recently sat down with OhioLINK to talk about her talent for breaking things, her goals for the upcoming year and her time as a stand-up comedian.
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. Her research could aid patients who are already diagnosed with a neurodegenerative disease such as Alzheimer’s, ALS and Down’s syndrome.
Congratulations to Kent State University School of Library and Information Science, Kent State University Tuscarawas Academic Learning Commons and The Ohio State University Libraries Journal Publishing for their mentions in the 2015 New Media Consortium (NMC) Horizon Report > 2015 Library Edition. The features include information about increased access to research content, the future roles and skills of librarians and the implications of makerspace inclusion in the library.
Josh Javor, an undergraduate student in Ohio State’s Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, received a 2015 Pelotonia Undergraduate Fellowship in May. Javor is in the final stages of designing a microscope that employs a detection method currently used in material science engineering to help oncologic surgeons quickly identify tumor margins in the operating room.

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.
