“OhioLINK Finding Aid Repository—consortial repository of finding aids in the state of Ohio.”
“The OhioLINK Consortium is scheduled to release an EAD encoding tool and repository this year. The
repository will deliver finding aids and use the XTF Search Engine, adapted from the California Digital Library
implementation, for search. We expect to adopt the encoding tool and participate in the finding aid repository for
delivery and search.”
“We hope to create a local consortium so that our finding aids will be searchable along with those of other
archival and manuscript repositories in the region.”
“At least not in the near future.”
“No plans currently, but this could change.”
“Not for now.”
