SEO Consortium

One of the most exciting upgrades at the Brumback Library is becoming part of the SEO Consortium. The SEO (Serving Every Ohioan) Service Center, located in Caldwell, is a branch of the State Library of Ohio, which supports a consortium of 99 Library systems at 278 service points throughout 50 counties across Ohio using the OPLIN network.

SEO supports a centralized shared catalog database that includes over 8.1 million items with a patron database of nearly one million users, with an annual circulation of over 15 million.

Patrons will now be able to request items from any of the member libraries and receive those materials (if available) in 2-3 days.  Try it out!  You can begin browsing the catalog, placing holds, renewing items and checking records online at home or here at the library.

 Listed below are some of the many benefits of this new partnership:

  • Access to over 8 million physical items through the consortium catalog including books, audio books, music CDs and movies to name just a few.
  • Nationwide interlibrary loan service through OCLC WorldShare
  • Ohio Digital Library membership and support
  • Instructional videos on using library services
  • E-mail and text notices for holds, reminders, and overdue items
  • Full-featured mobile app
