OhioLINK and 19 Ohio public libraries have formed a new partnership that increases access to library materials for all involved. OCU students, faculty and staff now have access to popular titles as never before. The SearchOhio collaboration gives OhioLINK patrons access to some 9.5 million items currently held in public libraries. Aptly described as a “win-win situation” by OhioLINK Executive Director John Magill, the effort expands the reach of OhioLINK’s 49.5 million circulating items, while providing students with easy access to popular books, DVDs, and CDs that university libraries often cannot afford. The materials are shipped/returned just as any OhioLINK item. Look for the SearchOhio button to make requests and share in the fun!
