EBSCO is offering an exclusive deal for current OHIONET subscribers to promote their eBook Collection for Public Libraries. Libraries can now purchase EBSCO's extensive eBook collection for 20% of their total renewals for last year and receive flat renewals on all resources this year. So if a library renews with OHIONET for an additional 20% this year they will receive access to the eBook collection. And, if the library decides to move forward with the collection, none of their renewals will be increased.

Rosen's elementary-level PowerKnowledge Science suite just received a rave review from NSTA--National Science Teachers Association: "PowerKnowledge Science offers more useful and kid-friendly information than other sites on the Internet. I've never experienced a site with more support or ease of operation. This site helped my students gather, describe, and apply information in their understanding of the natural and designed world in which they live."
How does the COUNTER project help you? If your library provides access to e-journals, databases and e-books, this project is important to you. COUNTER (Counting Online Usage of Networked Electronic Resources) has been working in the background, establishing standards for online resource usage statistics. OHIONET is a long-time consortium member of COUNTER to support this ongoing endeavor for the benefit of our libraries who subscribe to electronic resources.
