Who is LITA?

The Library and Information Technology Association is the leading organization reaching out across types of libraries to provide education and services for a broad membership. The membership includes new professionals, web services librarians, systems librarians, digital initiatives librarians, library administrators, library schools, vendors and anyone else interested in leading edge technology and applications for librarians and information providers.

What is LITA Forum?

The Forum is an ideal place to interact with the library technologists who are using your products, who will be implementing them, and who are or who will advise the decision-makers. Attendees are working at the cutting edge of library technology and are interested in making connections with technically-inclined members of your staff, who can learn about new directions and projects in libraries.


The 2013 Forum in Louisville, Kentucky hosted participants from 40 states and 3 Canadian provinces. Job titles of attendees included Library Director, Emerging Technologies Librarian, Head of Technical Services, Electronic Resource Librarian, Web Services Librarian, Metadata Librarian, and Digital Scholarship & Data

 Management Librarian. Attendees were predominantly from academic libraries, but also represented public and special libraries, archives, and other information organizations. A significant majority of participants are involved in recommending or purchasing hardware, software, and IT services on behalf of their organizations.
