New Preview: Biography Reference Center (OhioLINK Trial)


Ebsco is offering a statewide trial to all Libraries Connect Ohio libraries (public, K-12, and OhioLINK) to the Biography Reference Center product. The LCO group currently subscribes to Wilson's Biography Reference Bank product in their LSTA-funded package, and this Ebsco database may be considered as a possible substitute for the Wilson product in FY 2011.
