The Ohio eBook Project Manager is here to answer any questions or other concerns Member Libraries may have about any part of the Ohio eBook Project and OverDrive service. The Project Manager also coordinates committees, policies, guidelines, training, and other information to Member Libraries. The role of the Ohio eBook Project Manager is to answer any questions, monitor spending, distribute documentation, make news announcements, organize committees, and facilitate communication with OverDrive on behalf of the consortium.
When someone has a question, or a problem arises there is no question as to who to contact, the Ohio eBook Project Manager should be your first point of contact. The exception to this is for patron support; please see the Providing Support document for more information about support contacts.

The Ohio eBook Project hosts two listservs. One for staff working in member libraries and another for members of the Advisory Council. The Ohio eBook Project Listserv is a means of communication between the project manager and member libraries as well as between the member libraries themselves.
The listserv is open to any staff member of any member library though, at a minimum, each library’s primary contact should subscribe to the listserv. The project manager sometimes makes announcements directly but usually announcements are made via the listserv.
Announcements include service updates (outages, improvements, etc.), committee meetings, etc.
Staff persons at member libraries are more than welcome to post to the listserv for technical or support assistance, assistance with MARC records and ILS systems, requesting or sharing marketing and promotion information, and other items pertinent to the digital services.
