Ahoy Mateys! The 2008 Ohio Library Support Staff Institute will set sail July 27 – 29, 2008 at the University of Toledo. OLSSI has planned outstanding programs, interesting lectures, and fun activities for participants.

Lodgings for all attendees and scallywags will be at the Crossings, which features air-conditioned 3-bedroom suites. Each attendee will have his or her own bedroom.
