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 continually adding to the timelines, so if you have any key events you think we have omitted, please submit them to us for consideration and follow along as ODIN grows!
