On June 19, the State Library Board appointed Marty Beets to a three-year term on the OPLIN Board, beginning this July 1.
Marty is the Director of Technology Operations for The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, where he has held various IT positions since 2008, having spent the previous ten years with various private technology companies. He replaces Sandi Plymire, Director of the Muskingum County Library System, who is term-limited from the Board after six years, including a year serving as Chair of the OPLIN Board.
Following discussions at the April planning meeting of the OPLIN Board, the Board has approved revisions to the OPLIN Strategic Plan for 2014-2015. These revisions only involved slight wording changes to bring the plan up to date, with no substantive changes to OPLIN policies, goals, or objectives.
