Imagine having an Ohio history expert and research librarian in your pocket. You can stroll through Oberlin's campus and view Carnegie Library postcards from the 1930s. Or visit Grandview Heights High School and see a yearbook page from 1985. Read stories of Confederate soldiers escaping from the Union penitentiary in Columbus. Or explore the shores of Lake Erie and read current research about its unique ecosystems of fish and wildlife.

Institutions like the Library of Congress, the State Library of Ohio, and the Ohio Historical Society have made digital reproductions of culturally significant photographs, documents, and recordings freely available over the Internet. The mapFINDS Ohio app will use OCLC's WorldCat Search web services to present these materials to you based on their location and search criteria. It will also provide you the ability to mark favorite items of interest, enhancing your later searches.

The mapFINDS Ohio app was created by OCLC staff as an entry for eTech Ohio's Mobile Apps Development Contest.
