The Reference Update Series is back! Stay on top of the latest reference trends and enhance your research skills at the fourth Reference Update Series. This year’s Update will focus on a special library or collection, give you useful reference information on selected disciplines, and bring colleagues together to discuss current trends and issues.

The day begins with an overview of databases from the three state networks: OPLIN, OhioLINK and INFOhio . You’ll be introduced to a number of valuable education resources and identify the best sources for scholarships and grants. Furthermore, you’ll take a glimpse of Ohio history resources in anticipation of the onslaught of bicentennial queries.

Join your colleagues for a lively day of networking and new information. This year’s featured library is the Cleveland Zoo. The collection is developed primarily to support zookeepers and staff, but you'll learn how else this unique collection can be useful to others. Discover the breadth of the zoo’s information resources and meet a four-legged guest or two.
