LITA Regional Institutes are one-day workshops on technology-related topics. Taught by experts and presented throughout the country, they reach beyond ALA Conference locations to bring you high quality continuing education. Due to speakers' time constraints and the desire to make the institutes available to the highest number of geographic locations, scheduling may be limited.

Host an Institute
LITA licenses an institute to an organization. The organization pays LITA a licensing fee for a one-time presentation of the institute. The organization sets its own registration fee and is responsible for all planning, logistics, and publicity. LITA pays the speaker's honorarium, travel, and hotel expenses. LITA would like to hear from potential hosts. Please contact LITA if you would like more information.
The Education Committee identifies topics and presenters, reviews proposals, and recommends educational programs to the LITA Board. The Education Committee accepts proposals for programs, webinars, workshops, or regional institutes via the submit a proposal webform.
Send topic suggestions for courses, webinars, workshops, or regional institutes to the LITA Office.
