LOEX membership operates on a calendar year basis. The membership rate for 2014 is only either $85 (print and online-access to the Quarterly) or $77 (online-access only). Invoicing for a new membership year begins in November of the preceding year (if you need an invoice sent/re-sent after this date, please email LOEX). Members will be notified of any change in the membership rate in their invoice or by their subscription service agent.

All librarians and staff affiliated with a LOEX member library are invited to join the LOEX E-List in order to receive LOEX Currents, our monthly current awareness e-newsletter, and notification of the PDF posting of our regular publication, LOEX Quarterly. If you are not sure your library is a LOEX member, please e-mail us for verification. If your library is a member, we will add you to the LOEX e-distribution list for receipt of Currents and the Quarterly.
Our substantive publication is published and mailed 4 times per year. It includes practical articles on library instruction and information literacy as well as reports on instruction and information literacy initiatives around the world. The Quarterly also features its regular columns: "News from the LOEX Office", "Book Review", "Eye for Design", "TechMatters", and "The Quarterly Interview." Individuals at member libraries may receive the electronic version of the Quarterly by request.
If your institution is a member and you would like IP address authentication for viewing the latest four issues of the Quarterly, please email your range(s).
Our monthly current awareness service (published September through May) is available upon request to individuals at member libraries. It includes news bites, announcements and other time-sensitive information such as job postings, of interest to those engaged in instruction and information literacy efforts.
LOEX sponsors a national conference each spring. LOEX conferences are often hosted by member libraries throughout the United States. These conferences, which focus on practical applications in instruction and information literacy, give attendees opportunities to meet colleagues, learn about successful programs and regain their momentum. Librarians at member institutions are given priority registration for LOEX conferences, which typically fill quickly.
After each conference, LOEX members receive online access to the recordings of all LOEX Encore virtual sessions (in September, after the live sessions occur in May) and the conference proceedings (one year after they are published in print).
The LOEX Web site was redesigned in 2012 to include the updated logo and synchronize its look and feel with the conference web site. Access to the LOEX site is without charge and is a service to the library instruction and information literacy community providing links to relevant resources in the field and serving as a marketing tool for membership in LOEX.
Based on the virtual lack of requests from members since 2005, LOEX no longer distributes physical materials, such as video tapes, flyers, handbooks and similar materials, This print/media collection is also now closed in terms of new acquisitions. If a member has a question about the collection, please contac the LOEX Director.
