The purpose of Libraries Connect Ohio (LCO) is to ensure that all Ohioans have access to a core collection of information resources and library services that will help them compete in the global knowledge economy. Alongside its related partners, – OhioLink, OPLIN and INFOhio – LCO has partnered with Gale to provide more than 2,500 school, academic and public libraries throughout Ohio with free access to Gale digital resources such as ChiltonLibrary and Kids InfoBits.
The digital resources are available from any computer or mobile device with a library card.
“We are excited to bring these new digital resources to Ohio library users. Gale is helping us transform learning for Ohioans in new innovative ways by providing easy and equal access to reliable, quality content for education success.”
– Beverly Cain, State Librarian of Ohio
“We are particularly proud that Ohio’s citizens can freely access such a wide spectrum of valued resources at their local libraries, through this groundbreaking collaboration between OhioLINK, OPLIN and INFOhio.”
–Amy Pawlowski, OhioLINK Deputy Director
