New Learning Environments:
Papers and Session Materials Presented at the 26th National LOEX Conference

Library Orientation Series: #30

Edited by Linda Shirato

The 26th National LOEX Conference was so named because it took place on the Eastern Michigan University Campus in the new Bruce T. Halle Library. Guest speaker, Morell D. Boone, is Director of the Halle Library. This model library embodies many new technologies, and was designed with the learner in mind -- to create an environment that will facilitate learning in the new digital and electronic environment.

Hannelore Rader, one of the founders of the original LOEX Conference, and now University Librarian at the University of Louisville, addresses the changes seen in the library instruction world from those early days up to the present. She emphasizes the evolution of the original "library orientation" concept into today's "information literacy."

In addition, the conference proceedings feature many other excellent presentations. Included in volume 30 are fifteen instructive sessions and five poster sessions.
