Grandma can use Academic Search Premier for her research too!

Does your little brother need an article for his high school paper? Are your parents interested in researching marketing ideas for their business? Then you should tell your family members how they can access and use more than 50 databases that you currently have access to through the Muskingum College Library and OhioLINK web sites. You can direct your family members to the Ohio Web Library, a core collection of electronic research resources provided to all Ohio residents by Libraries Connect Ohio, a collaborative effort of Ohio's library organizations.

Two new Web sites describe this state-wide effort. The first,, provides a list of available resources and background information about the Ohio Web Library. It also provides a gateway to help Ohioans connect to the electronic resources via INFOhio, OhioLINK, OPLIN and the State Library of Ohio. The second site,, provides detailed information on the way Ohio's libraries and library organizations are working together to provide valuable resources to Ohioans.
