The Ohio Public Library Information Network (OPLIN) just unveiled OPLIN Mobile, which allows visitors to find an Ohio library or search their Discover Ohio link directory via cellphone or other mobile device. When visitors try to access the OPLIN homepage on a mobile device, they're automatically redirected to the OPLIN Mobile service.
