Some OhioLINK services unavailable over holiday weekend

OhioLINK’s Electronic Book Center (EBC) will be down for much of Thursday, November 27 (Thanksgiving Day).

OhioLINK’s Web site and many resources will be unavailable on Saturday, November 29, from approximately 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., while some planned maintenance is completed. OhioLINK’s Library Catalog, Electronic Journal Center, E-Book Center, Digital Media Center, Electronic Theses and Dissertations Center, and OSearch databases (such as Inspec and PsycINFO) will all be unavailable during this time.

While OhioLINK is down, you will still be able to utilize many library resources, such as Academic Search Complete and other EBSCO databases, by connecting via our library’s Web site.
