Library User Education in the New Millennium:
Blending Tradition, Trends, and Innovation:
Papers and Session Materials Presented at the 27th National LOEX Conference

Library Orientation Series: #31

Edited by Julia K. Nims and Ann Andrew

The 27th National LOEX Conference presentations focus on rethinking traditional services and implementing innovative programs. They all reaffirm the need for excellent library instruction in college and university libraries.

The theme of the keynote speaker, Cheryl LaGuardia, is that instruction librarians are specialists who play a key role in preparing students for the information age.

Dr. John Lienhard, the featured speaker, addresses the necessity of and the difficulty in preserving and sharing resources and knowledge. He speaks eloquently about issues impacting library services and resources.

In addition there are 15 instructive sessions ranging from designing and implementing Web tutorials, to exploring the role of teaching faculty in information literacy, to collaborating with other groups on campus.

Five poster presenters cover issues ranging from teaching returning adult students to introducing personalized library Web services.

Discussion sessions present the thoughts of conference participants about students' use of the Web for research and marketing library instruction programs, among other topics.
