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. 

OhioLINK recently selected seven member librarians, faculty, and staff members to become the OhioLINK Open Textbook Network (OTN) System Leaders. As system leaders, they will coordinate OhioLINK OTN awareness and advocacy initiatives regarding open educational resources (OER) and open textbooks as part of the OhioLINK and Ohio Department of Higher Education affordable learning initiatives for higher education.

Journey

One OH-TECH team member will never take OhioLINK for granted. That's because she knows what life is like without it. Christi Playford recently spent a good amount of time designing an infograph/postcard for OhioLINK detailing the journey of an article through the Electronic Journal Center. Along the way, she learned three very important things about OhioLINK.
