Time is running out to take advantage of OHIONET's group offer for Mango Languages for academic libraries.

OHIONET has been working with Mango since the transition of Mango Languages from statewide contract in July 2013. Several schools have become a part of our group, and we are working with Mango to provide opportunity for more schools to join this year.

As part of that work, we have established an offer for our members runs through the end of July. In brief, it includes an additional 20% off their standard discount to OHIONET, plus access to their new Mango Premiere movie-based language learning module.

The full details of this offer are available on request.

If you have questions about the offer, please contact Christine Morris at christinem@ohionet.org or 800-686-8975, ext. 29.

Thanks to OHIONET members working together cooperatively, we have been able to work out a deal with EBSCO to continue access for all OhioLINK libraries to EBSCO's Education Full Text (formerly from H.W. Wilson).

In mid-June, it became clear that we did not have sufficient support to continue the group as it had been; several libraries had to drop their support because of changes in usage and budget.  However, once the call went out to membership, the response was quick and positive: members wanted to work together to keep a good thing going.

We would like to thank the new supporters of the group, including Defiance College, University of Akron - Wayne College, Ohio University - Lancaster, Ohio Northern University, Franklin University, Columbus College of Art & Design, Wilmington College, Franciscan University, University of Dayton, and Oberlin College.

We would also like to thank those libraries that offered to extend their existing support, including Heidelberg University, the State Library of Ohio, Capital University, and Cedarville University.

Final distributions among newcomers are still in determination, but all will be notified within the week of the final amounts.

We are grateful to our members for their willingness and ability to work with us to achieve common goals like this.

Our current OHIONET offers for medical and health sciences are: Thieme e-books & tools, McGraw Hill medicalRittenhouse, and OVID LWW journal collections for nursing.  If you missed the June trial of the new ClinicalAccess point-of-care product, please request a trial of this or other products from OHIONET at your convenience. Contact us for more info: ohionet@ohionet.org.
