Rosen Digital Learning Solutions Receives Recognition

Rosen's elementary-level PowerKnowledge Science suite just received a rave review from NSTA--National Science Teachers Association: "PowerKnowledge Science offers more useful and kid-friendly information than other sites on the Internet.

This site helped my students gather, describe, and apply information in their understanding of the natural and designed world in which they live."  

COUNTER Project Benefits Libraries

How does the COUNTER project help you?  If your library provides access to e-journals, databases and e-books, this project is important to you.  COUNTER (Counting Online Usage of Networked  Electronic Resources) has been working in the background, establishing standards for online resource usage statistics. OHIONET is a long-time consortium member of COUNTER to support this ongoing endeavor for the benefit of our libraries who subscribe to electronic resources.

Anticipating Member Needs

One of the ways we try to help our members is by anticipating their needs.  Earlier this year when Libraries Connect Ohio announced which resources wouldn’t be available statewide for 2013-2014, OHIONET sought to establish partnerships with those vendors.  Through working closely with them, we were able to offer discounted pricing to multi-library types to purchase those resources individually, or in some cases, as part of a consortia.  One great example of this is Mango Languages, a very popular language learning resource.  37 public libraries and 1 consortial group sub
