OhioLINK patrons now have access to an additional 9.5 million popular books, DVDs and CDs, thanks to a new collaborative program with SearchOhio, a network of 19 public library systems throughout the state. SearchOhio patrons will also have the ability to borrow more academic materials from the 90 OhioLINK member colleges.
“For us, it’s a win-win situation,” says John Magill, Executive Director of OhioLINK. “We’re expanding the reach of OhioLINK’s physical resources to a larger number of Ohio’s citizens, while at the same time making it easier for our students to find the more popular titles found in a public library. And they’ll still be able to pick up their books at their home library.”
The library systems involved in SearchOhio include Akron-Summit County Public Library, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Cuyahoga Falls Library, Delaware County District Library, Greene County Public Library, Kent Free Library, Louisville Public Library, Mansfield/Richland County Public Library, Massillon Public Library, Mentor Public Library, Portage County Public Library, Reed Memorial Public Library, Rodman Public Library, Stark County Public Library, Toledo-Lucas County Public Library, Wadsworth Public Library, Warren-Trumbull County Public Library, Westerville Public Library and Youngstown Public Library.
For help with SearchOhio requests, please contact librarians at your OhioLINK member institution.
