OhioLINK Adds New Digital Resources with the Ohio Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) Funds

by Donna Stewart on 2021-01-26T12:03:00-05:00 | Comments


OhioLINK, Ohio’s academic library consortium, has received $2.5 million from the Ohio Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) funds through the Ohio Department of Higher Education. These funds are being used to purchase digital resources for Ohio colleges, such as streaming video and e-books, to supplement online research, as well as provide instructional support for a wide range of curriculum, including physical and applied science courses that traditionally have not been taught online.

The following GEER-funded resources are now available to assist faculty in teaching remote and hybrid courses to undergraduate and graduate-level students across a wide range of disciplines, with emphasis on the most pressing need to support teaching labs in the STEM sciences and courses for the allied health fields. 

For assistance with any of these new resources, please ask any of our subject specialist librarians.
