OhioLINK and College Credit Plus

Feb 24, 2015

Ohio’s College Credit Plus program allows Ohio public school students in grades 7-12 who qualify for college admission to earn secondary and college credit at the same time by taking college courses. Once again at the Ohio Educational Technology Conference, OhioLINK sponsored a presentation overview of library resources available to College Credit Plus faculty, teachers and students with INFOhio's Erica Clay. 

To best provide access to this information, there is a video of the 2015 presentation where Clay describes tools and strategies for students embarking on research for College Credit Plus courses.

INFOhio's Erica Clay and OhioLINK's Elizabeth Coulter present on library resources for College Credit Plus at OETC 2016.

Additional information can also be found by visiting the Ohio Department of Higher Education's site. Through this initiative, students, faculty, teachers and librarians have access to a wide range of resources available for College Credit Plus, including OhioLINK resources.

The below flier and PowerPoint presentation also provides an overview of the resources available and is a good starting place for faculty and teachers working with College Credit Plus students.

"OhioLINK’s enormously rich shared collection is available to students, faculty and staff of its 117 members – whether public universities like University of Cincinnati, private research universities like the University of Dayton, two year colleges like Columbus State or Marion Tech, or private colleges like Hiram or Denison," wrote Executive Director Gwen Evans in a 2015 blog post on OhioLINK resources and the College Credit Plus program. "In College Credit Plus programs, secondary school students have the same access to OhioLINK resources as any other college student, both on-campus and off."  Read the full post on the OH-TECH blog by clicking here.
