COLUMBUS, Ohio – After an eventful year during which the organization changed leadership and assisted its member libraries as they dealt with unprecedented COVID-19 changes, OhioLINK announces a reorganization that promotes three long-time staff to leadership. Judy Cobb, Joanna Voss, and Theda Schwing will move into newly created Associate Director roles.
Ohio Department of Higher Education Chancellor Randy Gardner has named Amy Pawlowski executive director of OhioLINK, Ohio’s academic library consortium, effective immediately. Pawlowski joined OhioLINK in 2013 as deputy director for operations and e-licensing. She has served in an interim capacity since February.
Nichole Frederick, Systems Librarian, is the most recent addition to the OhioLINK team. Nichole received her degree from Ohio State, and her Masters of Library Information Sciences from Kent State. Before joining OhioLINK, Nichole worked for the Ohio State University libraries.
OhioLINK recently spoke with Nichole about her professional responsibilities as well as her favorite books, her many hobbies and how she enjoys spending her free time.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (May 11, 2017) – OhioLINK is pleased to welcome a new member to its team. Nichole Frederick joined OhioLINK on May 1, 2017 as the OhioLINK systems librarian.
Libby Davis, one of OhioLINK’s student interns, helps implement marketing strategies through social media as well as assists with various office tasks. The Columbus native has been working with OhioLINK since high school.
As a third-year student majoring in marketing at Ohio State, she has found her passion while working at OhioLINK and plans to continue on the marketing path after graduation.
Libby recently discussed with OhioLINK her plans for after graduation, her involvement in clubs at Ohio State and the reason you will never hear her sing in front of a crowd.
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.
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.
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.
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.
