OhioLINK & Google Books

"The OhioLINK catalog has links to Google Books when a limited preview or the entire book is available for reading. Entries with information only (citation) were eliminated thanks to Thomas. The phrases you will find in the catalog now include: Limited Preview at Google Books and Read at Google Books." -- Sue Polanka, Wright State University

Sample searches illustrating Google Book results include:

Read at Google Books

Limited Preview at Google Books

OhioLINK: New Database

The OhioLINK blog What's New reports Ohio Capitol Connection has replaced the Gongwer News Service; this change is reflected on the library's Database by Title Page.

"Ohio Capitol Connection provides information about current and past legislation of the Ohio General Assembly. Updated daily, it has the complete status and full text of bills introduced in the Ohio General Assembly. This database includes rosters of House and Senate members searchable by name or location, and addresses and biographies of the General Assembly members. While the database focuses on Ohio, information about the Federal government is also available." - OhioLINK Databases
