OhioLINK. OhioLINK and Ithaka S+R articulate needs that can guide future investments.

The effort was driven by library deans and directors concerns that strategic directions and technologies available to libraries--both at the consortial level, and on their campuses--were too narrowly scoped to meet emerging needs in a higher education context.
