LOEX (Library Orientation Exchange) 2007 will be held in San Diego, CA May 3-5. The call for papers was recently announced, and when I read it I thought it sure sounded like a natural fit for DE Librarians. The theme of the conference is Uncharted Waters: Tapping the Depths of Our Community to Enhance Learning, and here's the summary:
More and more instruction and information literacy activities call for librarians to venture beyond the library and even beyond their campus to enhance student learning. Successful journeys beyond the familiar require that librarians be both passionate about what they do and willing to take risks, including identifying new partners, speaking new languages, incorporating new tools, developing non-traditional deliveries, and changing instruction and programs to meet student needs. Some librarians have already embarked on these voyages to tap the depths of our community and draw new maps for others to follow. This conference will highlight the successful ventures of those brave librarians who are doing new and unexpected things to enhance their library instruction and information literacy programs.Kinda sounds like what you do, doesn't it? Deadline for submissions is Friday, Nov 10, 2006.
