As you no doubt know, the State Library of Ohio has, for many years, provided a library consultant specifically assigned to work with Institution libraries and staff.

This assistance takes the form of on-site visits, training and research assistance as it relates to library issues in general and to those unique to the prison setting

Unfortunately, with the new budget constraints, we are forced to re-examine where and how staff are allocated. For us, this includes looking closely at the consulting services provided to Institution libraries. We feel it only right to inform you that this service is one we may be forced to eliminate.

One possibility to consider is that of working into your budget funds to support this service. That certainly is an option Id be happy to discuss.

Please feel free to contact me if you have questions.
