This is a special partnership between the State Library of Ohio, OhioNET and all of the regional library systems.  As a special, statewide event it does not fall under the terms of NEO-RLS membership levels .  All participating entities have worked very hard to keep costs down so that library staff throughout the state are able to participate. 

Made possible thanks to a grant from the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), awarded by the State Library of Ohio.
