Instant access to information via the web and other social media formats enables the State Library to distribute news and information as it happens. It is no longer necessary to produce the type of newsletter that the State Library began in February 4, 1958. The Ohio Libraries Quarterly will launch in 2012 as an online journal in Adobe Flash format. . The new name and schedule reflect the journal style trend The News began to assume in January 2005. It was the beginning of a new format where each month featured a theme. It also marked the beginning of The News as a web-based publication.
