Established in 1992, the Ohio Library and Information Network (OhioLINK) is Ohio’s statewide academic library consortium, serving 88 institutions plus the State Library of Ohio. Delivering both IT infrastructure and content negotiation, OhioLINK provides students, researchers, faculty, and staff with access to valuable digital research collections at a fraction of the cost if those collections had to be purchased by individual institutions.
OhioLINK also connects library services, print and digital collections among its member institutions and manages collaborative services aimed at reducing students’ cost of higher education in Ohio, including eTutoring and Affordable Learning.
A member of the Ohio Technology Consortium and funded through the Ohio Department of Higher Education, OhioLINK creates competitive advantage for its member institutions and supports student and researcher success across Ohio.
Together, OhioLINK and its member libraries provide access to:
- more than 44 million books and other library materials
- more than 100 electronic research databases
- 33 million electronic journal articles
- 200,000 e-books
- nearly 85,000 images, videos and sounds
- more than 100,000 theses and dissertations from students at 36 Ohio institutions
