The Ohio Library is an informational web site and gemini capsule about the State of Ohio. The goal is to provide useful Buckeye State information sans the excesses and harms of the present day World Wide Web.

In other words, we're an Ohio-centric knowledge base free of ads, JavaScript, keyloggers, pop-ups, analytics, cookies, web beacons, canvas fingerprinters, auto-play videos, parallax scrolling, and other nonsense found everywhere else on the internet.

Beyond avoiding the pitfalls of the modern web, we have a work-in-progress Resources page, which we hope will become a useful Open Source repository of Ohio-related data in the future. To keep up with future Ohio developments, we will likely provide a way to submit new information, or start a Git repo where anyone can contribute.
