Dr. Jim Boland, Professor and Director of Wilmington College’s Peace Resource Center (PRC), will share information about the PRC’s collection, programs and services during the CMCIG sponsored session at ALAO’s Fall conference on Friday, October 24th.

CMCIG Coordinating Committee member, Mary Cummings, Shawnee State University, will join Gayle Geitgey as one of the INFOhio 12-13 presenters in the OhioLINK Users Services’ Fall Conference program:  2010:  OhioLINK Odyssey.  This session will help prepare attendees for the impact these new collaborations may have on library staff, patrons, services and collections.  The session complements the CMCIG spring workshop presentation by Cynthia Duchane, INFOhio’s Project Coordinator.

CMCIG Coordinating Committee member, Sara Bushong, Bowling Green State University, accepted the position of Interim Associate Dean of the BGSU Library for 2008-09 and requested a respite from committee responsibilities.  We congratulate Sara and wish her continued success in this position.  Kathy Yoder, Bowling Green State University and CMCIG co-chair elect, will join the CMCIG Coordinating Committee.  Kathy will be the Interim Head of the CRC for one year.  Welcome and congratulations to Kathy!

The CMCIG’s 2008/09 goals are to update the CMCIG online directory and encourage participation by the 51 Ohio institutions with teacher preparation programs.  Greg Martin, Cedarville University, is coordinating this project.

Another goal is to research state initiatives for cooperative/collaborative collection development of education and CMC materials and resource sharing.
