The OhioLINK library catalog combines the holdings of its 90 member libraries, including the State Library of Ohio, into a shared catalog totaling nearly 50 million items. The shared catalog lists books, e-books, e-journals held on OhioLINK’s servers and other materials available on publishers’ websites.
Students and faculty discover materials available throughout the state and get those items delivered to their home institution — exponentially stretching the reach of all Ohio’s higher education libraries. This extremely cost-efficient system has been nationally admired for more than 20 years. In 2012, more than 700,000 physical items were borrowed through OhioLINK.
