Conferences are wonderful experiences for a number of different reasons: Growing skillsets, networking with prominent though-leaders and experiencing new ways of conducting business. All of these are summed up by one thought, improvement. Recently, members of eStudent Services attended the annual ACTLA conference and the takeaways were more than anticipated. Take a look at Mitch Wilson's recent blog post on the conference and the benefits with which the eStudent Services team came away. 

I recently spent an afternoon tinkering around in the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s Interface Lab. What felt to me like a mind-opening trip to a video game playground is actually a hub of innovation and groundbreaking discovery for computer and medical scientists.

Mitch Wilson, the eStudent Services’ program coordinator, joined the staff in 2013 and assists in managing the tutors of eTutoring and the students’ questions, the daily operations of eTutoring, webinar hosting design and editing, data analysis and school communications.

April kicks off the electronic theses and dissertations (ETD) submission season. Submitting an ETD is one of the last requirements for many Ohio students before their Masters or Ph.D. graduation. It is at this point that the students begin to log on to the OhioLINK ETD Center, some sign up for a research ORCID identifier, and submit their ETD to be reviewed and published. While this sounds simple, there is a lot of work that goes into the submission and review process.

Recently, we visited the LRITA Tech Conference in Lima, Ohio to share what high performance computing modeling and simulation can offer manufacturers and engineers. As usual, the response was, "why aren't we using this program already?" Introducing people to our M&S and opening eyes is a pretty cool experience. Check out more about our trip to LRITA and what we were able to share with IT professionals from northwest Ohio. 

 

Job-hunting is daunting for everyone, but it can be especially burdensome for veterans transitioning to civilian life. Fortunately, Ohio’s academic libraries and institutions have made significant strides to make this process an easier one for military service members.

Many university and local libraries have programs specifically tailored to veterans.
