| SearchOhio makes over 16 million public library items available to the communities served by the 28 library systems (188 branches in all!) listed below. The SearchOhio Catalog allows direct, online requesting for residents of Ohio and delivery of books and other library media within a matter of days.
SearchOhio is a partner with the OhioLINK system, which serves academic libraries. Together these systems are able to meet the information and entertainment needs of a very broad cross-section of Ohio's population. SearchOhio will be actively pursuing further partnerships as well as growing its membership.
Our service has grown thanks to our customers' enthusiastic usage and our members' dedicated efforts. The graph on the right shows the number of items delivered in each year since its inception.
Polaris libraries please note: The SearchOhio system's developer, Innovative Interfaces, Inc. (III), is working on a protocol that will allow other vendor's ILSes to participate more easily in SearchOhio. Development is starting with Polaris, so Innovative is looking for Polaris libraries that want to participate in trials of this protocol. Contact Christopher Holly at III for more information.
SearchOhio depends on the dedication of its member libraries.
