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.
