State Rep. Kristin Boggs (D-Columbus) announced Monday that over $6.8 million in state funds were approved by the Controlling Board for increasing access to library resources at the Ohio State University. The funds will be used to purchase OhioLINK sole source electronic journals and citations, which assist students and staff with research, discovery, education and teaching.
“These funds will provide OSU students and staff with broader access to library resources and other educational tools that can better prepare them for learning and teaching opportunities,” said Rep. Boggs. “The OhioLink digital resources are extremely necessary as students and staff are completing their work virtually and every added resource is helpful during this time.”
The Ohio Library and Information Network (OhioLINK) is a nationally renowned academic library consortium serving 117 libraries, 88 institutions of higher education and the State Library of Ohio.
OhioLINK Digital Library portfolio contains the most high-impact, cutting-edge material in all academic disciplines, and is particularly rich in the journal-dependent STEM disciplines. Collectively these journals are an indispensable resource for curriculum support at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and supports research programs at member institutions.
