Changes to OhioLINK Databases

In July and August, the CSU libraries will experience a significant realignment of research databases provided by OhioLINK. We will be losing access to several databases, but simultaneously gaining access to a sizable list of titles we did not previously have. For some of those titles lost, new titles from a different vendor are available and will be provided. For others, there is no specific substitute. In the case of a few discontinued databases, we will retain access to the previous years' files, to which we had subscribed. Most of the cancellations will take effect on August 1, 2006. The libraries will make every effort to provide a smooth transition for students, faculty and staff.

For more details, call the University Library Reference Center at (216) 687-5300, or check the complete list of database changes.

Seven Millionth Article Added to EJC

The seven millionth journal article was recently added to OhioLINK's award-winning Electronic Journal Center. The EJC provides students, faculty and staff at participating OhioLINK institutions with instantaneous online access to more than 6,900 journal titles from 90+ publishers.

OhioLINK users downloaded 4.81 million articles from the EJC annually. A total of 21.9 million articles have been downloaded from the EJC since its inception in April 1998.

More EJC stats may be found on the EJC Fast Facts page.

Tip: Try OhioLINK's E-Journal Finder to see if OhioLINK offers a particular journal online. The OhioLINK E-Journal Finder searches the EJC and several other databases to help find desired journals. If you don't find the journal in question using the E-Journal Finder, check with the Reference Center or call (216) 687-5300 as there may be other means of accessing the journal online.
