Discussing a New Division (ALCTS, LITA, and LLAMA)

Tuesday, 11/27/2018 - Wednesday, 11/28/2018
  • 10:00 AM-6:00 PM (Eastern)
  • 9:00 AM-5:00 PM (Central)
  • 8:00 AM-4:00 PM (Mountain)
  • 7:00 AM-3:00 PM (Pacific)

Join members of the project Communications Working Group on Tuesday, November 27 and Wednesday, November 28 for an e-Forum discussion to chat about the divisions as they exist now, what you would want in a new division, and answer any questions that you may have about the new division process. Your input is vital to informing the creation of this new division, and the Steering Committee wants to hear from you!

If you want information about how this process got started, you can catch up on the conversation at the ALCTS/LLAMA/LITA Alignment Discussion page on ALA Connect. 

If you’re not familiar with the e-Forum format, we’re using the ALCTS e-Forum model, which provides an opportunity for librarians to discuss matters of interest, led by a moderator, through the e-Forum discussion list. The e-Forum discussion list works like an email listserv: register your email address with the list, and then you will receive messages and communicate with other participants through an email discussion. Registration is necessary to participate, but it's free and open to anyone.

LITA and LLAMA members: Even though we’re using the ALCTS e-Forum, don’t be afraid to sign up and participate! This conversation is open to anyone with an interest in the future of LLAMA, LITA and ALCTS. 

Learning Outcomes

Whether you’re a current member of ALCTS, LITA or LLAMA, or have thought about joining, we want to hear from you! This discussion will give you a chance learn more about the new division project and provide input on what you hope to see from a new division. 

Who Should Attend

Any current, past, or prospective members of ALCTS, LITA or LLAMA, as well as anyone who’s interested in guiding the future of our divisions.
