It’s summer, and all the signs are here. Master’s and doctoral degree students have fully emerged from their writing dens with thousands of words worth of research over which they’ve toiled for months—even years. They’ve planted the seeds, met with advisors who have nurtured and massaged their work. What does this mean for you? A new crop of theses and dissertations have put down roots and bloomed in OhioLINK’s Electronic Theses and Dissertation (ETD) Center

A note from OhioLINK Executive Director Gwen Evans

OhioLINK has been enabling affordable learning and discovery in our state for 25 years. In that time, we’ve become far more than books and libraries—we’re a growing organization with expanding services and stakeholders.

OhioLINK’s most recent addition to the team is Johnathan Michael, the resource acquisitions and contracting assistant. Johnathan brings a degree from Ohio University along with a background in education and music to the OhioLINK team.

We recently spoke with Johnathan about his music expertise, what brought him to OhioLINK, and his role with the library consortium.

OhioLINK is currently leading the charge in the state of Ohio to promote affordable learning materials in higher education. OhioLINK has long been at the forefront of this effort by collectively purchasing content in the form of central catalog materials, journals, and e-books that can be used by all students, faculty, and staff of 92 OhioLINK member institutions.

Many OhioLINK institutions are promoting and hosting events for the 10th annual Open Access Week (October 23-29), an international week that focuses on resources that are freely available to anyone online. This year’s theme,  “Open in order to …”, allows participants to showcase their efforts and the benefits of Open Access (OA).  Open Access and Open Educational Resources (OER) help make education more affordable for students in Ohio and around the world.
