The Benefits of OHSLA Membership

Don’t miss out on the in-person and virtual opportunities for collaboration, publication, networking, and problem solving. Join for the energy and renewal that comes from interacting with your colleagues and knowing that you belong to a vibrant community that understands your needs and shares your values and goals.

Below are just a few highlights of the benefits of OHSLA membership.

  1. Affordable, Convenient and Closer-to-Home Educational Activities: OHSLA sponsors relevant and affordable quality programs, discussion groups, and other activities at two annual meetings, including an upcoming joint meeting in 2018 between OHSLA and the Midwest Chapter of the Medical Library Association in Cleveland, OH. Most of our meetings feature 3-4 MLA approved continuing education credits on a wide variety of topics. At only $40 per meeting, including breakfast, lunch and continuing education credits, this is an extraordinary value! An added benefit is the opportunity to visit and tour many of Ohio's exceptional libraries.
  2. OHSLA Newsletter and Blog: Our online publications, The OHSLA Voice and The Voice of OHSLA Blog, keep members up-to-date on the news, activities, projects and plans of its leadership, committees, and members.
