Direct access to LearningExpress Library resources through INFOhio will cease effective August 9.

Why is access to LearningExpress through INFOhio being discontinued?

INFOhio is keenly aware of the need for high-quality digital educational resources that support student learning now and in the future. Our long-standing membership in the Libraries Connect Ohio (LCO) partnership has allowed us to license those resources at greatly reduced prices and offer them at no cost to Ohio's 1.9 million PreK-12 students, their teachers, and parents.

INFOhio's funding was cut by 42% in the budget that took effect on July 1. As a result, INFOhio was not able to contribute to the LCO Ohio Web Library collection as we have in the past.

The LCO partners, which include INFOhio, OhioLINK, OPLIN, and the State Library of Ohio, met in July to decide how to manage the shortfall to mitigate the effect on Ohio's P-20 students and citizens. With a great deal of difficulty and after considering usage statistics and available alternatives, LCO decided to remove LearningExpress Library from the collection of digital resources.

Is access to LearningExpress available elswhere?

We realize that many students have relied on LearningExpress Library for practice tests and skill building. Much of that content is still available through OhioMeansJobs for K12, including the test prep practice tests, tutorials, and ebooks.

What other resources are available to help students prepare for college or work?

INFOhio has prepared a guide entitled, "Ready for College, Ready For Work, Ready for Success!: Free College and Career Readiness Test Prep for Ohio Students" that will help direct students and educators to additional resources that are available to prepare students to transition to college or the workforce.
