On Thursday and Friday, June 11-12, the Ohio Technology Consortium (OH-TECH) welcomed 45 technologists representing colleges and universities from Ohio and other states who arrived here to study an important emerging security technology. These systems administrators, identity managers and developers packed the BALE Theater and Conference Room to take part in the InCommon Shibboleth Workshop [https://www.incommon.org/shibtraining/] and learn how to implement federated identity management software.

John Burke

John Burke, library director of the Gardner-Harvey Library at Miami University Middletown, began his career just as online catalogs and periodical databases were becoming widespread and the nascent Internet was gaining interest.

His interest in this technology drew him to the field – as well as led him to help others keep up with the ever-changing field as the author of a technology textbook.

OhioLINK recently talked with Burke about working at a regional campus, changes in technology and their impact on librarianship over the past two decades
