10 Millionth Unique Title Added to OhioLINK Central Catalog
Three weeks ago, the OhioLINK Central Catalog grew to over 45.5 million items with the addition of the 10,000,000th unique title. Unique titles are those owned only by one institution, amongst the 86 participating consortium members. Member libraries include Ohio academic partners, the State Library of Ohio, and two public libraries (Cuyahoga County Public Library & Westerville Public Library.) The ten millionth unique title, added by The Ohio State University, is Mexican Modern: Masters of the Twentieth Century, by David Craven and Luis-Martin Lozano (Museum of New Mexico Press, 2006).
Faculty, students, and staff can search and locate materials on the consortium catalog and also order them to be delivered to any OhioLINK member library for convenient pickup in 3-4 days. Over 769,000 items were ordered from the consortium catalog from October 2005 to September 2006, and the monthly statistics keep increasing. Ohio researchers borrow daily from a catalog that would now fit on a bookshelf 898 miles long!
An OhioLINK press release tells more about this latest OhioLINK milestone.
Case is one of the original six founders of the award-winning OhioLINK consortium. Enjoy the vast riches of OhioLINK — the Central Catalog with its order/delivery functions, nearly 20,000 e-books, 2,000 digital videos, nearly 8 million scholarly articles, iamge databases, and more. When visiting other OhioLINK schools, checkout library materials with your Case ID card and a library account in good standing. Then put a PIN in your library account so you can renew online, track materials you've ordered from OhioLINK schools, and enjoy PIN-authentication for OhioLINK remote access. KSL staff are always ready to help you with PINs and more information about OhioLINK!
