OSU experiences dramatic increase in online lending using Odyssey

"In October 2006, 61% of filled article requests at OSU were delivered via Odyssey, compared to 36% filled via Odyssey in October 2005. What a difference a year makes! We've reduced the number of articles we send in paper to a trickle, and our ARIEL use has dropped significantly as many libraries now turn to Odyssey. In Ohio, many schools that had never sent articles electronically in the past are now using the free Odyssey Standalone client.

We are pleased and amazed at how many other locations are increasingly using Odyssey within ILLiad or the free Odyssey Standalone software."

We are a worldwide library cooperative, owned, governed and sustained by members since 1967. Our public purpose is a statement of commitment to each other—that we will work together to improve access to the information held in libraries around the globe, and find ways to reduce costs for libraries through collaboration.
