LearningExpress Library Version 2.0

The launch of LearningExpress Library Version 2.0 has a new interface and some new features for users. The layout had a makeover so it is now more easy-to-use and organized. Users will still have access to the same courses, tests, and reports as before. All current and completed tests stored in the former "My Account" section will now appear in the newly named "My Center" page.

Also, Version 2.0 features enhanced online help, from “Getting Started” tutorials to topic-based help. There is direct access to learning centers. For example, if you are promoting materials on the LSAT for students from your website, you can link directly to the LSAT Learning Center in Learning Express Library.

2009 READ Poster Winners

Congratulations to the Women’s Soccer Team and FreeZone for being voted as this year’s READ poster winning groups. They will be photographed with their favorite books and featured on posters to be displayed in the library.

Also, being recognized for their efforts is Otterbein Staff Council who will be featured on their own poster.

This is the first year that the library has opened the contest up to campus groups and hopes to continue the tradition in years to come. Watch for the new READ posters to turn up spring quarter!
