OhioLINK - OCLC Collection Analysis Project

OhioLINK and OCLC released a report detailing collection analysis of academic library usage of books and manuscripts "because these materials typically circulate, and circulation is a significant element in evaluating collections" (OhioLINK What's New, 9/29/11).

The data used in the report was from a collaborative OCLC-OhioLINK Collection and Circulation Analysis project that joined OhioLINK circulation data with WorldCat bibliographic records to produce a base file of circulation records for nearly 30 million different books. Ninety institutions participated in the study, including 16 universities, 23 community/technical colleges, 50 private colleges and the State Library of Ohio. The size of the combined collection and the number and diversity of participating institutions make this by far the largest and most comprehensive study of academic library circulation ever undertaken. -- OhioLINK What's New, 9/29/11

Library Spotlight: Summer Projects


University Completes $1.2 Million Library Project

Ashland University has completed a $1.2 million library upgrade this summer that included the installation of solar panels on the lower level roof of the tallest building in Ashland County.

"This is the first time we have installed solar panels on this campus," said Rick Ewing, vice president of facilities management. "Our primary motivation was not necessarily financial, but the potential and opportunity for us to move in the direction of reducing the impact we have on our environment. It's a first step for us."

Ewing said the $1.2 million library upgrade was a three-step process that included:
  • replacing the HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) equipment in the building, which included taking out all the electric baseboard heat and replacing it with a gas fired boiler feeding two heat pumps on each floor.
  • retrofitting the lighting in the building. Ewing said workers changed out the T8 fixtures, which will result in not only an energy savings but improvement in lighting levels and the lifespan of the bulbs.
  • installing a 10 kilowatt array of single photo panel cells on two sections of the low roof as well as the side of the library. The sections on the lower roof each contain 18 panels.
"The cost of the solar panel work was $95,000 and it has a 14-year payback," Ewing said. "There also is the potential to get state tax grant money to offset a third of that cost."

Ewing said the solar panels will be tied into the library's electrical system and this will help offset the electricity that is pulled from the university's grid.

"Eventually, we hope within three to four weeks, we will have a link on our website that will feature real time monitoring of the electrical output of the panels," Ewing said. "The project is part of a performance contract where the vendor and installer will document and track the energy savings over the next 10 years and guarantee the savings will exceed the financed cost of the project."

Ewing said he believes this is a creative way for Ashland University to finance these energy and deferred maintenance upgrades without directly impacting the University's general fund. Ewing is a member of the green sustainability group on campus titled "Ashland University Goes Green." "This group is heavily involved in informing students and promoting green initiatives on campus," he said.

Website Downtime Thursday

The Ashland University website, including most Library web pages, will be down for several hours Thursday, July 28th, beginning at 4:30 p.m., as the University launches a redesigned site for Future Undergraduates.  We expect that various Library resources will remain accessible via these links:

July 22, 2011

Library Closing

The Library closed early this afternoon because of a power outage across Ashland.  Database access has been restored, and we expect to be open as scheduled tomorrow, Saturday, May 23rd, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

July 7, 2011

WorldCat Down July 10th

WorldCat and other OCLC FirstSearch databases will be down Sunday, July 10th, from 1:00 a.m. until at least 6:00 a.m. and perhaps as late as 11:00 a.m.

July 6, 2011

Database Access Restored

Off-campus access from the AU Library web pages to the research databases has been restored.  You may need to clear the cache of your browser and restart your computer.  If you have any continuing access problems, write to us at library@ashland.edu or call 419-289-5402.

OhioLINK Catalog Reminder

From the OhioLINK Facebook page, a quick reminder about catalog access July 7th.
Just a reminder: the OhioLINK Central Catalog will be down for several hours starting at noon TOMORROW (7/7)for server migration. If you've got book requests on your to-do list, this might be the best time to do it!

Additional information is detailed on the OhioLINK web site:

The OhioLINK Central Catalog will be unavailable while planned maintenance is performed beginning at noon on Thursday, July 7. We expect the migration to a new server will be completed by the evening of the 7th. During this time you will not be able to search the central catalog or request items. Local library catalogs will remain available for searching.

July 4, 2011

OhioLINK Catalog Down July 7th

The OhioLINK Catalog will be migrated to a new server on Thursday, July 7th.  It will be inaccessible from about noon through the afternoon and perhaps into the evening.  While the catalog is down it will not be possible to request OhioLINK books or to renew them through your AU Library account.  (For Ashland University users this may have little significance, as we currently cannot place OhioLINK requests because of a separate problem.)

Access to research databases should be unaffected by the OhioLINK Catalog migration.

July 2, 2011

Continued Access Problems

Although access to the AU Library Catalog has been restored and research databases are accessible on campus, off-campus access to databases remains a problem.  Most users, however, can get to our OhioLINK databases via the OhioLINK website.

A second continuing problem is that it appears to be impossible to place OhioLINK book requests or to renew OhioLINK books.

We apologize for the inconvenience and hope that these problems can be resolved before Tuesday, when the Library reopens.  If you need assistance or have questions, please write to us at library@ashland.edu

July 1, 2011

Library Access Restored

Access to the AU Library Catalog has been restored, along with OhioLINK book requests and off-campus access to databases.  You may need to close and reopen your browser and clear its cache.  If you need help with this or have questions, please call 419-289-5402 or write to library@ashland.edu

June 30, 2011

Catalog and Database Access

Access to AU Library resources has been partially restored.  If you're off campus, you should be able to get to the AU Library Catalog, though you may need to close and reopen your browser first.  Campus access to the Library Catalog remains blocked.  OhioLINK requests will not go through from either on or off campus until campus access to the AU Library Catalog has been restored.

On campus, you should be able to get to any research databases.  Off campus, you can get to any of our OhioLINK databases by authenticating from the OhioLINK site.

For assistance, call us at 419-289-5402 or write to library@ashland.edu

Library Catalog Down

The AU Library Catalog is down for what should be a short time because of a server change.  This will prevent ordering OhioLINK materials and will block off-campus authentication to databases, though databases should still be accessible on campus.

When the Catalog is again live, you may need to close your browser and reopen it to get to the Catalog or to authenticate for database access.  If you have questions, please call the Reference Desk at 419-289-5402.

OhioLINK Web Site

OhioLINK's User Services committee has been working to update and refresh the OL web site to, among other things, make it more easily accessible to users using mobile devices. Zoe Stewart-Marshall, Assistant Director, User Services Development at OhioLINK released the following information this morning.





With the approval of the User Services Committee, the new header bar and stylesheet are now in place on the main web site. This continues the ongoing process to refresh our user interfaces which you have seen already in the EJC and other OhioLINK services.

This refresh includes revisions to the home page, including a different layout if the page detects you're using a mobile browser (to see it, resize your browser window to less than 800px wide and go to http://www.ohiolink.edu/ - it also happens automatically if your browser identifies itself with a name that includes iPad, iPod, iPhone, Android, Blackberry, or Symbian*). This logic is also used in the map of members and the EJC article-level display.

As a lagniappe, the home page now also randomly rotates the library photo every thirty seconds.
We hope you enjoy the new look and feel and that our users coming in on mobile devices find that website easier to work with.

OhioLINK Grant News

From the OhioLINK What's New Blog and OhioLINK list serv:

OhioLINK has been named a recipient of a $750,000 grant from Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC), a new initiative focused on identifying and scaling technology-enabled approaches to dramatically improve college readiness and completion, especially for low-income young adults. OhioLINK’s winning project will build off of its successful Ohio Digital Bookshelf program by creating multimedia and self-assessment tools to help students succeed in fundamental math and applied engineering courses. OhioLINK’s proposal was one of 29 recipients chosen out of 600 pre-proposals and 50 finalists.

NGLC is led by EDUCAUSE in partnership with The League for Innovation in the Community College, the International Association of K-12 Online Learning, and the Council of Chief State School Officers. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation helped design the Next Generation Learning Challenges, and fund the initiative.

“This grant funding from Next Generation Learning Challenges will provide a broader opportunity to help struggling students gain a better grasp on the fundamentals of math and applied engineering,” said Ohio Board of Regents Chancellor Jim Petro. “The tools which come out of this program will help create a stronger workforce for Ohio.” -- Stacy Brannan, Marketing and Communications Coordinator OhioLINK
