Hurt/Battelle Memorial Library Is Joining the SEO Consortia

The Library will be closed on September 14th and 15th so that staff may receive training on the new Serving Every Ohioan software.  The SEO (Serving Every Ohioan) Service Center, located in Caldwell, is a branch of the State Library of Ohio, which supports a consortium of 98 Library systems at 258 service points throughout 49 counties across Ohio using the OPLIN network.

SEO supports a centralized shared catalog database that includes over 8.1 million items with an annual circulation of over 15 million.  West Jefferson  residents will have access to these resources.  Library users  will also have access to hundreds of thousands of downloadable e-books, audiobooks, movies, magazines, and journals.

The system goes live on September 16th.  Customers will need to update their library cards for the new system after this date.  Contact the library for more information.
