After 11 years of State Library of Ohio funding support KnowItNow24X7 will end on December 31, 2015 at 11:59 p.m. Following a cost analysis and declining usage, the State Library of Ohio Board recently voted to cease federal LSTA funding for the statewide virtual reference library service.
KnowItNow24x7 was an outstanding example of the collaborative efforts of Ohio libraries. The State Library of Ohio continues to support a number of programs and services that maximize the use of public funds by facilitating resource and information sharing among Ohio’s libraries.
