New Cambridge University Press “Read & Publish” OhioLINK Arrangement has begun for Wright State University authors

OhioLINK has negotiated a new “Read & Publish” deal with Cambridge University Press. The deal, which went into effect on January 1, 2022 and which lasts through December 31, 2024, will provide important access for the Wright State community.  

What are the main effects of this deal? 

There are two main components of the agreement: 

Read As a result of this deal, Wright State University faculty, students, and staff now have access to current articles published in all 400+ Cambridge University Press journals. (If you are looking for access to a specific journal consider using our eJournal search to see the various access options and dates of coverage.) 
 

Publish All Wright State authors are now eligible to publish accepted manuscripts with open access at no cost in Cambridge journals. Open access makes the content available for anyone to access with no subscription or fee to read. In order to publish open access at no cost in a Cambridge journal, the corresponding author of the article must be affiliated with an OhioLINK institution, including Wright State University.  

Complete information about this deal, including the steps to take advantage of the open access publishing under this OhioLINK agreement is available on the OhioLINK information for authors page

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

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. The funds will be 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. GEER is part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which authorized federal economic aid in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The CARES Act includes several funding streams, such as GEER, to support the education community’s response to the public health emergency.

OhioLINK’s collection development committee recommended the following e-resources be purchased with GEER funds to assist faculty/instructors in teaching remote and hybrid courses to Ohio’s 2-year, 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. We thank ODHE for their advocacy and assistance in procuring the funds to make these resources available. See the full announcement on the OhioLINK website. For assistance with any of these new resources, please contact your Wright State University Libraries’ subject librarian.

The Educational Resource Center Relocates to Dunbar Library

When the Dunbar Library reopens this fall it will have 19,000 new and unique items added to the collection, all from the Charles & Renate Frydman Educational Resource Center (ERC).  The ERC, formerly maintained by the College of Education and Human Services, has now become a featured collection within the University Libraries.

  • Longer daily hours and extended finals week hours
  • A dedicated room in the Dunbar Library (210) for the collection and media lab services
  • Longer loan periods for print and non-print items (print now 112 days, non-print now 14 days)

Library staff moving the collection

University Libraries staff teamed up with Facilities Services to move the collection from 116 Allyn Hall to 210 Dunbar Library during the months of July and August.  After an extensive inventory, and over 250 trips through the tunnels, the move was complete in approximately 5 weeks.

Most of the Media Lab equipment, furniture, and computers were also relocated to Dunbar and the ERC webpages have been integrated into the University Libraries website. More information will be shared through social media about how and where to access the Media Lab equipment and services.  Future plans include integrating the University Libraries’ Children’s Literature collection into the ERC collection and expanded programming and outreach.
