Promotion
LearningExpress created posters, flyers, handouts, and bookmarks to help you promote LearningExpress Library.  You can even customize some materials to add your library website's URL.  Oregon customers may download materials from LearningExpress and from the options below or may order materials from LE customer support
 
Preview & Download Materials Via LE's Site 
To view the full selection of non-Oregon specific promotional materials, log in to LearningExpress Library using a special user name (learningexpresslibrarian) and password (welcome).  You may access LEL via your library's link or directly.  Once logged in, locate the section labeled Print Materials and Handouts, and click on View.  From there you may download and print materials or browse and then contact LE customer support to place an order.
 
Download or Order Posters with the OSL or OSLIS Logo
LearningExpress customized their three main promotional posters by adding either the Oregon State Library or OSLIS logo, a funding statement, and for OSLIS, specific URLs for access.  While supplies last, you can order OSL-logoed posters and bookmarks from LE customer support.  (They do not have OSLIS materials on hand.)  Or, download either poster set here.
