"We have released a new version of the OhioLINK Member Libraries page with upgraded functionality based on Google maps. It still provides access to a list of the Member Libraries and their contact information.
For those who may not be familiar with Google maps functionality, here are some helpful tips from Thomas, who developed this new version:
For those of you whose campuses are right next to another school (especially if the other school comes later in the alphabet), and your marker is largely covered up, there are several ways to navigate the map to get to your school. First and simplest, click the name of your school in the alphabetical list. The Google Maps software also provides several ways to zoom in and out: the "+" and "-" icons on the left side of the map, plus the gradients in between them; you can also double-click any spot on the map (except for markers, where you'll just open and close the information window); and if your mouse has a scroll wheel, that will also zoom in and out. Additionally clicking on one of the view by region links will help you zoom to a close up of a region,making it easier to spot schools that are clustered closely together.
Contact information becomes visible when you click on a marker for a given school. There are two tabs - one containing the links to institution URLS and the second tab labelled Contact Us, containing the contact information which you have provided.
A link to the text-only version remains available from the revised page."
Interested? Choose Ashland University from the menu to view:
It is possible to zoom in and out of the Google map with relative ease and view street names surrounding the library and campus. From the information balloon, "links" includes links to the library web site, library catalog, and the main Ashland University web site and "contact us" provides email, phone, and chat information for the library. A nice one stop way to find OhioLINK member libraries.
Don't forget, if you prefer the previous version of this page it continues to be available in text-only format.

From Anita Cook @ OhioLINK:
Saturday, October 4, between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m., OhioLINK will be migrating our power source. This (process) will support our equipment through any type of downtime including the one that happened recently where parts of Columbus were without power for days.
During this time, the Central Catalog, the Webserver, DMC and DRC servers, and the Ebooks should remain online. The EJC and the OSearch databases will see some significant downtime though we hope to keep thatas minimal as possible.
Announced late this afternoon, server maintenance has been cancelled. There should be no interruption of service on Saturday.
