MORE to close June 30


(June 1, 2017) – Following a cost analysis and acknowledgement of steep declines in usage, the State Library of Ohio (SLO) has announced it will cease funding for MORE and the service will officially end on June 30.

Given the uncertainty surrounding both state and federal funding, Beverly Cain, SLO librarian, said it is no longer feasible for the SLO to continue devoting funds to this service. In its prime, MORE was an exemplary model for facilitating resource sharing among libraries in a cost-effective and efficient manner, she said.

Beginning June 1, patrons will not be able to place a request.  All idle, end of rota, and terminated requests will be cleared.

We apologize for the short notice. Until MORE closes, you may log in to review the status of your requests but you may no longer make requests.
