OhioLINK's Electronic Journal Center grows to 4 million articles

ATHENS, Ohio -- Ohio University's faculty and students now have more than 4 million research articles ready to search and retrieve to meet their academic information needs. OhioLINK's innovative Electronic Journal Center (EJC) provides an extraordinary body of academic research articles with worldwide access for Ohio University researchers.

Recently, OhioLINK announced the addition of four new publishers -- Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, the American Psychological Association and Berkeley Electronic Press -- to the EJC. Their addition lifts the total number of affiliated publishers to 34 and the total number of scholarly journal titles to more than 5,500.

OhioLINK's Director Tom Sanville has aggressively led the growth of the EJC. "The EJC is truly an innovative resource," Sanville said. "It is one of the largest, possibly even the largest, collections of electronic journals run by a library consortium."

Ohio's academic community heavily uses the EJC, with more than nine million articles downloaded statewide since 1998. Ohio University students and faculty retrieved nearly 165,000 articles in the past year. This is made possible by the accessibility of the EJC, as all of its journal titles are listed in Ohio University Libraries' ALICE online catalog, along with links to the online issues. Researchers can even register with the EJC to receive regular email alerts for relevant new articles according to author, subject or journal title.

For more information about the EJC and the many other information resources offered to Ohio's educational community, visit OhioLINK's Web site at www.ohiolink.edu.

The Ohio Library and Information Network, OhioLINK, is a consortium of 84 Ohio college and university libraries and the State Library of Ohio.
