Registration is now open for the 2017 LITA Forum. This year’s event will take place from Thursday, November 9, to Sunday, November 12. Join us in Denver, Colorado, at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Denver Downtown Convention Center, for a three-day educational and networking event featuring two preconferences, a pair of keynote sessions, more than 50 concurrent sessions, and 20 poster presentations. It’s the twentieth 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.
The keynote speakers will be Casey Fiesler, University of Colorado Boulder, and Vivienne Ming, scientist and entrepreneur. The preconference workshops are “IT Security and Privacy in Libraries: Stay Safe From Ransomware, Hackers & Snoops”, presented by Blake Carver of Lyrasis, and “Improving Technology Services with Design Thinking: A Workshop”, given by Michelle Frisque of the Chicago Public Library.
