Share your OhioLINK story

We're searching for a few good stories from OhioLINK users. So tell us, how has OhioLINK helped you? Were you able to finish a research project that would not have been possible otherwise? Did you get an A on a class assignment? Did you teach your students something new? Perhaps you found that rare resource you had been searching for?

If you have a story or testimonial that provides a clear picture of the value of the OhioLINK program, please share it with us. Your story might be featured on the OhioLINK Web site and/or in future publications.

While we're always happy to get your stories, we're on the lookout for some great stories and testimonials by January 12 for use in the 2006 OhioLINK annual report.

Michael Naranjo, a Tewa Indian of the Santa Clara Pueblo, lost his sight in Vietnam, but he did not lose his dream of becoming a sculptor. His works are diverse in theme, fluid in their movement, each telling a story all its own. Michael's pieces are included in the collections of The Vatican, The White House, and The Heard Museum. Robert Thurmer, Director of the Art Gallery at Cleveland State University, will discuss the artist and his work during the program.

Parking is available at the corner of Chester Avenue & East 24th Street. To reserve a seat or for more information, call 216-875-9734 or email

OhioLINK is Now Providing 10 Million Unique Titles

The OhioLINK Library Catalog now includes 10 million unique titles and a total of 45.5 million copies of books and other libraries materials. Ohio students, faculty, staff and others from participating libraries can request these items online and pick them up at any participating OhioLINK library in just two to three days.

To visualize how many items 45.5 million is, imagine a bookshelf that stretches from Columbus to Portland, Maine. That would be 878 miles of shelf space, just twenty miles short of the amount needed to accommodate all 45.5 million items.*

The 10,000,000th title is Mexican Modern: Masters of the 20th Century, essays by David Craven and Luis-Martin Lozano. It was added by The Ohio State University Libraries this month.

But don't forget, these 45.5 million physical library items are just the beginning of what OhioLINK and Ohio's academic libraries offer students, faculty and staff. We also have a robust virtual library of 7.5 million scholarly journal articles, 19,000 electronic books, 2,000 digital videos and more. These items are accessible online 24 hours a day, seven days a week at and our library's Web site.

*Using an average book width of 1.25 inches, 45.5 million books lined up side-by-side on a bookshelf would cover a distance of 898 miles. The distance from Columbus, Ohio to Portland, Maine is 878 miles according to
