About the Ohio Technology Consortium

The Ohio Technology Consortium (OH-TECH) functions as an umbrella organization for Ohio’s statewide technology infrastructure organizations: the Ohio Academic Resources Network (OARnet), the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), and the Ohio Library and Information Network (OhioLINK).

Funded by the Ohio General Assembly through the Ohio Department of Higher Education, OH-TECH reports to the Chancellor of the Ohio Department of Higher Education. All fiscal and legal services are provided by The Ohio State University, with direction from the Vice President of Research. Through committees and direct contact with faculty and student researchers, OH-TECH is well positioned to meet the needs of those who require our resources. And to plan for future acquisitions and services, OH-TECH relies upon the guidance of the Ohio Department of Higher Education and the advice of committees to achieve and sustain national eminence.
