Database Access

OhioLINK databases will not be available on Saturday, October 3rd. Access to databases not on OhioLINK server's (Ebsco, OCLC, Lexis-Nexis, ISI, etc.), should not be problematic.

During this time, we recommend you begin your search using the library database page and not the OhioLINK database page as an access point for online research. There will be still be a few resources unavailable, but using the library page increases chances for database success.

"ALL OhioLINK systems will be offline on Saturday, October 3rd from approximately 4 a.m. to 8 p.m. (or after depending on when the work is completed). We are working on putting a redirect message on a machine outside the OSU facility that will display a message to anyone trying to connect to one of OhioLINK's services. That should be in place for Saturday's downtime." -- Anita Cook, OhioLINK
