The Consortium

Going online in August of 1998, the Ohio Private Academic Libraries (OPAL) consortium offers more than one million titles and three million individual items to the patrons of 24 Ohio academic libraries. All are also members of OhioLINK, a statewide initiative offering a shared union database and the reciprocal borrowing of over 50 million items amongst 90 libraries in the state.

OPAL strengthens and promotes member libraries through financially responsible collaboration and innovation.
