Newark Campus Director of Library Services Susan Scott has announced her retirement effective November 30. As a member of the Dean/Director’s cabinet at Ohio State Newark and a valued leader at Central Ohio Technical College, Susan’s direction of the library resources has been an asset to the campus since 2008.

Susan’s career took her to Kent State University and Denison University. Over the years, Susan’s experience in teaching and journalism, combined with her latter years’ experience in library management and information science, provided a solid foundation for her recent leadership role on our campus. She has provided guidance to a staff of five and maintained high quality library resources with an eye on current trends for the benefit of students.

In 2009, Susan was the recipient of the Jay Ladd Distinguished Service Award through the Academic Library Association of Ohio (ALAO), the highest honor awarded by the statewide organization. Susan’s involvement in ALAO spans more than 15 years and includes serving as past president among other leadership roles.

Susan has served on numerous committees during her tenure at COTC and Ohio State Newark, including Ohio State Newark’s Strategic Planning Steering Committee, COTC’s Strategic Planning Council, the website redesign team, the portal development team, and the Diversity Committee.  She has been directly involved in many student-focused activities and has demonstrated a commitment to enhancing our student-centered learning environment. Additionally, Susan has published or co-authored several books on topics such as the foundations of knowledge and assessment for academic libraries. 

Please join us in recognizing Susan’s accomplishments, showing appreciation for her service and wishing her a fulfilling retirement.

Warner Library joins libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating National Library Week, a time to highlight the value of libraries, librarians and library workers.

Libraries today are more than repositories for books and other resources. Often the heart of their communities, campuses or schools, libraries are deeply committed to the places where their patrons live, work and study. Libraries are trusted places where everyone in the community can gather to reconnect and reengage with each other to enrich and shape the community and address local issues.

Librarians work with elected officials, small business owners, students and the public at large to discover what their communities needs are and meet them. Whether through offering e-books and technology classes, materials for English-language learners, programs for job seekers or those to support early literacy, librarians listen to the community they serve, and they respond.

Warner Library serves The Ohio State University at Newark and Central Ohio Technical College by providing a full gamut of library resources and services including but not limited to reference service, library instruction, collaboration areas, interlibrary loan, reserves, laptop computers, and database access.

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April.
