Join us in Fort Worth, Texas, from November 17 to 20, at the Omni Fort Worth Hotel downtown, for the 2016 LITA Forum. This is a three-day education and networking event featuring three preconferences, three keynote sessions, more than 55 concurrent sessions, and 25 poster presentations. It’s the 19th annual gathering of the highly-regarded LITA Forum for technology-minded information professionals. Meet with your colleagues involved in new and leading-edge technologies in the library and information technology field. Registration is limited in order to preserve the important networking advantages of a smaller conference. Attendees take advantage of the informal Friday evening reception, networking dinners and other social opportunities to get to know colleagues and speakers.
