OhioLINK leverages cooperative funding, collective buying power, and centralized services to manage acquisition and access to wide range of scholarly e-resources. The shared digital Library of e-journals, e-books, and databases is delivered to institutions of higher education for $52 per student—less than the average cost of a single college textbook.
In addition, OhioLINK, in collaboration with SearchOhio, manages a groundbreaking peer-to-peer interlibrary loan system that opens the resources of OhioLINK's shared Central Catalog to all Ohio residents through their local library.
