The OhioLINK library catalog combines the holdings of 117 member libraries, including the State Library of Ohio, into a shared catalog totaling nearly 38 million items. The shared catalog lists books, e-books and e-journals available across the consortium and other materials available on publishers’ websites.
Students and faculty discover materials available throughout the state and can have those items delivered to their home institution — exponentially stretching the reach for all of Ohio's academic libraries. This extremely cost-efficient system has been nationally admired for more than 20 years. In 2019, more than 300,000 physical items were borrowed through OhioLINK.
