GEER Resources for Faculty

GEER Resource Information for Faculty

Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) funds are part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, federal economic aid authorized in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2020, OhioLINK was awarded funding for a first round of GEER resources through the Ohio Department of Higher Education.  In 2022, OhioLINK has been awarded additional funding that will be used to continue efforts to bridge gaps in higher education instructional materials and library resources created by the pandemic. OhioLINK's statewide collection development committee recommended the following e-resources be purchased with the GEER funds to address the ongoing needs of faculty/instructors in teaching remote and hybrid courses to Ohio’s 2-year, undergraduate, and graduate-level students across a wide range of disciplines.

We thank ODHE for their advocacy and assistance in procuring the funds to make these resources available.  Access for this second set of resources is now available as of December 1, 2022.

See the announcements on OhioLINK's website for the first round of GEER-funded resources in 2021 and the current second round of GEER-funded resources.
