Working Better Together

When libraries join together, amazing things happen.

OhioNet is a consortium of over 4,000 libraries, banding together to share skills, expand access to resources, build partnerships, and multiply our buying power in order to give patrons and our communities our very best.

Calculate Your Rate

OhioNet membership rates are tiered based on your organization’s materials budget.

How to find your materials budget?

Your library’s materials budget, sometimes called a collections budget, is a number submitted to the State Library or IPEDS for statistical reporting. Find your library’s submitted budget using the State Library Website or IPEDS.

If your library does not report publicly, we accept self-reported data using the tiers shown in the tool above.

If you have additional questions, please contact Christine Morris at [email protected] or call 800-686-8975, ext. 29
