Last Saturday (Aug. 8, 2015), I got on my bike with 7,980 other cyclists (including at least one unicyclist) and took to the road to raise funds for cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center—Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute. 

In a small, intimate setting at the restaurant 9 Tables in The Plains near Athens, I spoke to Ohio University’s Institute for Chinese Academic Leaders about shared collections and services and the challenges and opportunities for academic library consortia. After giving a brief overview of OhioLINK to a group of about 15 people, including leaders from Beijing Normal University and Northeast Normal University, I spoke about the practicalities of building and sustaining a consortium model. Consortia models exist in all shapes and sizes, and I enjoyed the opportunity to speak about OhioLINK and to give a brief overview of several other models here in the United States. Academic library consortia have many different membership models, resources and services

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.
