OhioLINK Snapshot 2010

The 2010 OhioLINK Snaphot (pdf) is now available online and "ready for viewing." This document provides information concerning the benefits of collaborative licensing, effecient borrowing with the OhioLINK central catalog, the Electronic Journal Center (EJC) and Digital Media Bookshelf, and the Digital Resource Commons.

Take a few minutes to learn more about OhioLINK and the advantages available to Ashland University students, faculty, and staff. Ashland University Library is an OhioLINK member institution.

"OhioLINK is a consortium, which by its very definition suggests the efficient pooling of resources for the benefit of many. Once digital materials like journals and e-books are purchased, they are held locally, meaning OhioLINK will always own the rights to their distribution. This arrangement, unique even in the library world, allows the member libraries to more efficiently plan the development of their own collections, assuring that the group-purchased content will always be available to their students, faculty and researchers." - OhioLINK Snapshot 2010
