OhioLINK Planned Service Outage June 12 6pm - June13 12pm

All OH-TECH organizations – including OhioLINK – are moving to a new data center. The new location at the State of Ohio Computing Center will provide us with a near-Tier 4 data center that can deliver a higher grade of services and achieve greater efficiencies.

We have worked hard to schedule this move so as to minimize the disruption to OhioLINK end users. However, it is necessary to schedule one maintenance window which will involve a significant outage of all OhioLINK hosted services.

OhioLINK and College Credit Plus

OhioLINK statement regarding ADE 4 Reader

OhioLINK is aware of the privacy and security concerns around the newly released Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) 4 Reader. OhioLINK users should be aware that the vast majority of ebooks OhioLINK has purchased do not require the use of Adobe Digital Editions. These include the titles in the EBC (Electronic Book Collection), Oxford Scholarship Online, and the Wiley and Springer ebook collections. However, the use of ADE is required by a small collection of titles purchased through ProQuest’s eBrary platform.
