Beginning October 3, University of Cincinnati Libraries users will have access to a new resource for borrowing materials via SearchOhio. SearchOhio is a consortium of Ohio public libraries sharing materials amongst their patrons, similar to how OhioLINK facilitates the sharing of resources between many of Ohio’s colleges and universities. UC students, staff and faculty will be able to utilize SearchOhio to access books and more that they cannot first obtain through the University of Cincinnati Libraries or OhioLINK. Users will find a link to SearchOhio in their search results when they use the OhioLINK catalog.
The University of Cincinnati Libraries is a member of OhioLINK, a statewide system that provides access to 48 million library items, 9,000 electronic journals and 150 electronic research databases.
