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.

As we communicated to our regular billing contacts on June 11, OHIONET has recently experienced some issues with the regular distribution of our electronic invoices.

We have been working to identify the cause of the issue and correct it.  While we have made substantial progress toward that end, we have also utilized a number of methods for updating you with the information you may need.  This has been especially important, as we know that many of you are working to close out your fiscal year in June.

If you still have invoices that you are expecting, members can always use MyAccount (https://myaccount.ohionet.org).  Directors and fiscal agents should have the login credentials.  If you need those credentials, please don't hesitate to contact accounting@ohionet.org.

Similarly, staff at accounting@ohionet.org or ohionet@ohionet.org can respond to your request for PDF copies of invoices at any time.

To make certain that everyone had access to the June invoices, we have also sent out paper copies of the invoices via US mail.  You should have received those last week.  We will be sending July invoices via US mail as well.

We will continue to keep you posted on our progress with this issue, and we remain happy to serve you at your convenience through this process.

Questions about the invoicing in general can be directed to Jennifer Turner, Director of Administrative Services (jennifert@ohionet.org or 800-686-8975, ext. 22) or Christine Morris, Director of Member Services (christinem@ohionet.org or 800-686-8975, ext. 29).

Only a few weeks remain until OHIONET presents our multi-type, day-long conference, RDA 4 Everyone.  We’re excited about all our break-out session speakers as well as our keynote presentation from Ted Fons, Executive Director for Data Services at OCLC.  Mr. Fons’s talk, “Library Collections: Exploring, Sharing, Magnifying--a Metadata Strategy,” will explore the challenges and benefits of moving from the traditional record-based metadata environment to metadata management in the web of data and will focus on trends in entity-based data management and benefits across all library workflows.

Registration for the conference closes at 11:59 PM on July 6th! 

Don’t delay--sign up today!  Head to www.ohionet.org/rda-4-everyone for links to the full conference schedule, pricing information and multiple payment methods.

If you find yourself with questions, please don’t hesitate to contact…
