New career-tech automotive resource: Access vehicle knowledge from ChiltonLibrary through INFOhio

4/8/2019

Partnering with Libraries Connect Ohio, INFOhio has licensed access to the ChiltonLibrary on behalf of all Ohio preK-12 schools, giving students and teachers free access to the ChiltonLibrary online. The licensing was funded in part by a federal IMLS Library Services and Technology Act grant through the State Library of Ohio. Connect Ohio partners — INFOhio, OhioLINK and OPLIN — provided additional funding.
 
ChiltonLibrary, trusted by automotive enthusiasts and professionals for more than 100 years, delivers detailed information users need to tackle vehicle maintenance and repairs. With INFOhio, students and teachers have 24/7 access to this valuable resource. It has the maintenance, repair and technical service bulletins needed for most years, makes and models of vehicles. This continually updated resource offers: 

  • Step-by-step service and repair procedures; 
  • Wiring diagrams; 
  • Maintenance and specification tables; 
  • Troubleshooting guides and diagnostic trouble codes; 
  • Photos, illustrations, diagrams, videos and animations; and
  • Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) test preparation.
