SSIG History:

The group was formally recognized by the ALAO executive board in 1988; prior to its creation, several support staff from Ohio academic libraries met to draft a statement of purpose, to create a discussion group, and to draw up guidelines. Throughout the group’s existence, SSIG has been instrumental in highlighting the accomplishments of and promoting professional development opportunities for support staff in the academic libraries of Ohio.


Please contact us if you have feedback or suggestions for activities that will serve your continuing education and networking needs.
