NICOLE ARNOLDReference librarian Nicole Arnold has received a service award from the Ohio Private Academic Libraries (OPAL), a consortium of 24 private college and university libraries in Ohio.

In presenting the award, OPAL cited Arnold’s work in the development of LibGuides, a system of creating research guides and sharing information, and her management of an OPAL digitization pilot project.  Currently, she is on the group’s Information Literacy Task Force and is chair of the OPAL Users Services Committee.

Arnold joined the staff of the Muskingum Library in 2008.  She earned her bachelor’s degree from Wittenberg University and both her master’s degree and her master of library science degree from Indiana University.    

The OPAL consortium offers more than one million titles and three million individual items to the patrons of 24 Ohio academic libraries. All are also members of OhioLINK, a statewide initiative offering a shared union of database and the reciprocal borrowing of over 46 million items amongst 87 libraries in the state.
