(1/11/17) Congratulations to student assistants Nathan Bonzella, Robert Goble and Ben Roberts, who each received a $50 spot bonus for their work on November 28, when unfortunate tragic events unfolded on the OSU campus. These student workers kept patrons of our spaces calm, informed and safe during the lock-down that coincided with this active violent event.

When the senator died on December 8, his oral histories became open to the public. Providing them online became a high priority for the Ohio Congressional Archives. Maureen worked well into the night to get the transcripts and abstracts into the Knowledge Bank and publicly accessible the day of Senator Glenn’s passing, making his own reflections on his life available worldwide.
