5 New LIS Books to Borrow from OSL => Topics: 3D Printing, Guided Inquiry, Learning Stations, & Visual Literacy

I don’t usually post to OSLIST about new State Library materials, but since a few of the books relate specifically to information literacy, and because OSLIS is an information literacy website, I am making an exception.

Yesterday I let you know about four books purchased with library staff in mind. Here are five more new books. All of the titles are also featured on the State Library's Library and Information Science Collection blog. Check the end of this email for instructions on how to borrow materials from the State Library. It's easy!

If you would like to request these or other materials from the Oregon State Library on behalf of teachers or yourself, please use your library's established interlibrary loan process (e.g. OCLC or ALA request form). Otherwise, send your full name, the name of your library, complete title information, shipping address, and a phone number to the document delivery department at or (fax) 503-588-7119. Items will be checked out to your library, not to you personally, for 4 weeks (print materials) or 2 weeks (videos). Materials will be delivered via mail or Orbis Cascade Alliance Courier, and you may return them the same way. Normally a single copy is purchased and is loaned on a first-come-first-served basis. You may be put on a hold list for several weeks.

Most library staff are able to use their library’s interlibrary loan service to borrow professional development material. However, if you do not have access to these services or are not currently affiliated with a library, please contact me to discuss alternative options for borrowing the material.  

Be sure to check out our Library and Information Science (LIS) blog to discover the most recent additions to our LIS collection and search our catalog for our complete holdings. The library science collection is meant to support the whole Oregon library community. Library Support welcomes your suggestions for acquisitions. See the blog for an input form or email us.

This collection is supported in whole by the Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the Oregon State Library.
