State Employees

The State Library of Ohio is a member of OhioLINK. All state employees have access to thousands of electronic resources including full text magazines and journals in OhioLINK and other databases purchased by the State Library.

To access the online publications it is necessary to have a State Library of Ohio—State Employee library patron card. After the registration has been processed by State Library staff, normally within one work day, State of Ohio employees will receive an e-mail with their Unique Patron ID number and information about accessing State Library services.  Users may begin using their card immediately.  A physical library card will be sent via inter-office mail.

For help renewing a patron card call 614-644-6950 (Toll Free in Ohio 800-686-1532) or email
