Current News  

New Materials at the Library!
Ohio Dominican University Library is constantly adding materials to its collection. An alphabetical listing of materials added to the library collections in the past month can be found here


OhioLINK and the ADE 4 Reader
OhioLINK is aware of the privacy and security concerns around the newly released Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) 4 Reader. OhioLINK users should be aware that the vast majority of ebooks OhioLINK has purchased do not require the use of Adobe Digital Editions. These include the titles in the EBC (Electronic Book Collection), Oxford Scholarship Online, and the Wiley and Springer ebook collections. However, the use of ADE is required by a small collection of titles purchased through ProQuest’s eBrary platform. For more information, visit the recent OhioLINK press release.
