LITA National Forum: Call for Bloggers

LITA National Forum: Call for Bloggers

There is still time to sign up to blog for LITA at Forum. Blogging is a wonderful way to share your experience with others. We still have sessions which need coverage. I greatly appreciate everyone who takes the time to write up a session they attended.

Even if you need to do your blog post after Forum, that is ok. We know that not everyone can go with a laptop in tow! Please see the list below for openings. To see the complete schedule, please visit Send questions my way!
