Guide to INFOhio for Ohio's Public Librarians: INFOhio Content in Context

Learn how you can help the PreK-12 students you serve get the most from the resources available to them.

Content in Context

INFOhio has developed tools, enlists and trains corps of volunteers, and created dedicated staffing positions to put our digital content into context for our users. 

Preparing students for rigorous research

Many public libraries use a discovery tool that lets their users search their library catalog and their databases at the same time. For example, all the SEO member libraries have a search box on their home pages for Enterprise, which return results from their library catalogs in one tab and results from the Ohio Web Library databases in another tab. 

Because everything we do is standards-based, INFOhio is focused on ensuring that Ohio’s students are college and career ready. ISearch is INFOhio's discovery tool. ISearch is a research search engine that allows students and educators to access the INFOhio and Libraries Connect Ohio premium digital content and open access educational content, along with INFOhio-automated school library collections, from a single search box

The following tools are designed to take students through the research process in a way that makes sense to them. Go! is designed for use with middle school and high school students. R4S is designed for use with high school students and first and second year college students.
