INFOhio Website www.infohio.org

INFOhio launched a new website over the summer. You may have noticed that the old website was getting a little cumbersome and information was getting harder to locate. INFOhio decided to organize the new website from the ground up. All new and improved! Here are a couple tips you may find handy navigating the new site, from the main page:

  • Enter the electronic resources by grade groups
  • Click on the INFOhio Power button to jump to the Student or Educator landing page
  • Click on the banner for “Library Staff” to jump the librarians section. Here you will find links for the INFOhio toolkit (bookmarker templates, flyers, presentations, widgets, etc), the WorkFlows handbook, updated links to use for the INFOhio Electronic Resources (ER URL Links)
  • Tools and resources for educators
  • Calendar of upcoming events and webinars
  • A navigation bar has been added to the bottom of every page so users can jump to INFOhio resources
