The Cleveland Clinic Alumni Library is a member of OhioLINK. OhioLINK (The Ohio Library and Information Network), is a consortium of Ohio's college and university libraries and the State Library of Ohio. Serving more than 600,000 students, faculty, and staff at 85 institutions, OhioLINK's membership includes 17 public universities, 23 community/technical colleges, 44 private colleges, several public library systems and the State Library of Ohio. OhioLINK serves faculty, students, staff and other researchers via campus-based electronic library systems, the OhioLINK central site, and Internet resources.
OhioLINK's goal is to provide easy access to information and rapid delivery of library materials throughout the state. OhioLINK offers six main electronic services: a central catalog, research databases, a multi-publisher electronic journal center, a digital media center, a growing collection of ebooks, and an electronic theses and dissertations center.
How does this affect my use of the Cleveland Clinic Alumni Library?
Because the Cleveland Clinic Alumni Library is a member of OhioLINK, you have access to many more databases and thousands more books and journals.
- Books: If the Cleveland Clinic Alumni Library does not
own a particular book, with the click of one button you can easily check to see if any other OhioLINK
library has it available. If so, you can request that book and it will come to the Cleveland Clinic
Alumni Library, generally in 3-4 working days.
- Journals:If the Cleveland Clinic Alumni Library does
not own a particular journal, you can easily check to see if it is available online through OhioLINK.
- Databases: OhioLINK offers more than 100 electronic
research databases, including a variety of full-text resources. These databases cover many academic areas
at varying levels of detail. Many of the databases index journal articles.
All of these resources are available to Cleveland Clinic employees (Cleveland campus and its Family Health Centers only). To request books, or to use OhioLINK databases and journals from home, you must register at the Cleveland Clinic Alumni Library.
