Why Karen “Hearts” OELMA

This week’s “I Heart OELMA” comes from Karen Mossing, the 2014 Recipient of the OELMA Scholarship: 

As Karen and many others have mentioned, one of the greatest benefits that comes from OELMA membership is the listserv, which provides many opportunities for conversations and professional development.


Here are some of the other opportunities OELMA has scheduled over the next month for some in-person conversations, professional development, and support:

·        April 10 – 6:00 – 8:00 pm – Library, Computer, and Research Skills for College Success– Jerome Library, Bowling Green State University

·        April 18 – 9 am – 3:45 pm – Assessment Ready: Collaborations to Impact Student Achievement– Hilliard Bradley High School, Hilliard, Ohio

·        Become an OELMA Mentor – We’re looking for “seasoned” librarians who are willing to be available, by phone or email, to offer support and encouragement to some of our newest members. If you are interested, please email me at

Have a great day!
