OPLIN and the State Library of Ohio are once again partnering on E-Rate workshops for public libraries. Lorrie Germann and Steven Crumbacker from E-Tech Ohio will be conducting the workshops. The Form 470 workshop is scheduled for October 28, 2009 and the Form 471 workshop is scheduled for December 14, 2009. Both workshops will be held at the State Library with several videoconference sites around the state.
More information on the workshop sites and registration information will be made available closer to the dates.
Additionally, a webinar will be held the last week of September. The webinar will be hosted by Kendra Morgan, TechAtlas and is designed to assist public libraries in using the TechAtlas tool for the development of a Technology Plan that meets all E-Rate requirements. Public libraries are encouraged to use this free technology tool available at WebJunction Ohio or webjunction.techatlas.org
