State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) announced today that the state has approved the release of capital funds to the Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED). $61,501 will be used to upgrade equipment at the Northeast Regional Library Depository on NEOMED’s Rootstown campus. 

“The Northeast Regional Library Depository serves as an important resource for the region’s scholars, students and researchers,” said Rep. Clyde. “I am pleased to see an investment being made in this public asset. The Library Depository is exemplary of a successful partnership between the public universities that serve our community.”

The Library Depository will use the funds to purchase new material handling equipment for use in the library’s stacks, replacing outdated equipment that is 20 years old. A new, state of the art Bookeye 4 Color Scanner will replace a 15 year old scanner to enhance digital access to materials.

The Northeast Ohio Regional Library Depository is a high-density library that serves NEOMED, the University of Akron, Cleveland State University, Kent State University and Youngstown State University. Library collections and archive materials from these five public universities are housed and maintained at the facility where they can be accessed by students, faculty and staff. Over 1.4 million books are stored at the depository.

Rep. Clyde represents the 75th Ohio House District, serving Kent, Ravenna, Streetsboro, and Central and Southern Portage County.
