As you know, the Ohio Web Library resources are purchased by the Libraries Connect Ohio partnership, combining LSTA funds from the State Library and state funds from OPLIN, OhioLINK, and INFOhio to purchase access to these statewide databases for all Ohioans.

In the State of Ohio budget that took effect on July 1, state funding for INFOhio was cut by 42%, despite support from several legislators for restoring INFOhio's funds. As a result, INFOhio will not be able to contribute to the cost of the Ohio Web Library collection as they have in the past.
