ODIN's 30-Year Celebration

ODIN is 30 years young on February 2, 2019 so we thought it would be fun to celebrate for the whole year with our member libraries & friends!

Highlights of ODIN - the Projects and the People

Throughout the year, we will highlight some of the people and their stories that helped shape and bring ODIN to where it is today.

History of ODIN
To commemorate the anniversary, we are digging through our archives and adding key events to a series of interactive timelines. From the early dreams of an automated library catalog all the way to current plans to develop both a new library service platform for our academic libraries and a new integrated library system for our public libraries, ODIN continues to meet the needs of our member libraries.

NOTE: We are still adding to the timelines, so if you have any key events you think we have omitted, please submit them to us for consideration!
