Ohio Libraries Achieve New Heights in Resource Sharing

OhioLINK and SearchOhio Partnership Greatly Expands Patron Access to Materials

The OhioLINK and SearchOhio consortia have launched a major new initiative that takes their already unprecedented levels of resource-sharing to new heights. The 109 public and academic libraries, representing a combined collection of over 60 million items, have implemented Innovative’s new Peer-to-Peer Requesting to bridge their existing INN-Reach systems. Now, a patron from any library can freely request material from both systems.

Thanks to the new collaborative program, SearchOhio—a network of 19 public library systems throughout the state—will provide public library users with the ability to borrow academic materials from the 90 OhioLINK members. ..Users of OhioLINK’s 90 libraries will benefit from access to 11 million books, DVDs, and CDs through SearchOhio.
