On Thursday, March 15th, the State Library of Ohio board approved a grant to contribute LSTA funding to the Libraries Connect Ohio collection of digital content for FY2019. INFOhio, OhioLINK, and OPLIN, representing school libraries, academic libraries, and public libraries, contribute funding for this collection of high quality digital content. Through this unique partnership of library organizations, Libraries Connect Ohio is able to provide a strong and consistent set of resources that demonstrates the benefits of shared services and effectively serves Ohioans of all ages.
INFOhio will provide more information in the coming weeks on digital content that will be available to all PreK-12 schools through Libraries Connect Ohio and INFOhio. Be the first to know about all high quality, digital, instructional content available from INFOhio by joining our listserv, subscribing to our newsletter, and connecting with us throughsocial media.

The Libraries Connect Ohio collection of digital content, which will include resources from EBSCO, World Book, Oxford University Press, Gale, and Recorded Books, is licensed for a period of 5 years, contingent upon funding, and is evaluated annually. To learn what digital content will be included in the Libraries Connect Ohio collection beginning July 1, 2018 see “Libraries Connect Ohio FY2019 Collection Announced” under “What’s New” on the INFOhio homepage.
