The Libraries Connect Ohio Partners (OPLIN, OhioLINK, INFOhio< and the State Library) have worked cooperatively to benefit all Ohio citizens. Six new databases are now available to Ohio's school, public, and academic libraries through their networks. Since comprehensive training materials are not yet available, this half day demonstration session will give you an overview of the new resources. Take advantage of this database snapshot to better serve your patrons. Get a heads up on content description and coverage of each database along with some helpful search tips.
