From the Call for Proposals: Library technologies evolve at a rapid rate, and require continual assessment and adaptation of services. Yet, technical services librarians meet these challenges and develop innovative ways to recreate services for the information needs of library users. You are cordially invited to come and share with others how you are using emerging technologies to reinvent services at your library.

More than 100 librarians will be attending the 2015 Ohio Valley Group of Technical Services LibrariansOVGTSL-2015-LOGOThe Ohio Valley Group of Technical Services Librarians (OVGSTL) was founded in 1924 and draws its members from the states of Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio. The annual conference rotates among these three states on a regular basis. Membership is open to anyone interested in library technical services.
