Top Technology Trends Discussion Session
Sunday, January 27, 10:30 am - 11:30 am, Washington State Convention Center, Room 606-607
LITA's Top Technology Trends session at Midwinter 2013 in Seattle will both return to its roots and take a new tack. As LITA's premier program on changes and advances in technology, the roundtable discussion will return to its original Midwinter form of a more informal discussion amongst library technology experts and thought leaders. The new tack will be to focus on a single broad area of current interest or concern to the library technology community.
LITA President-Elect Cindi Trainor hosts the LITA Town Meeting
Monday, January 28, 8:30 am - 10:00 am, Washington State Convention Center, TCC 302
Inspired by ALA President Maureen Sullivan's charge to "Re-Imagine ALA," we will spend this year's town meeting re-imagining LITA. What works? What doesn't? And… what if? If we could draw the future of LITA, what would it look like? Join us in person in Seattle or online wherever you are—watch Twitter and ALA Connect for details for joining online, which will be shared closer to the event.
