STUDENT REGISTRATION RATE AVAILABLE for 2009 LITA National Forum Salt Lake City, UT October 1-4, 2009
The Library & Information Technology Association (LITA), a division of the American Library Association, is offering a special student registration rate to the 2009 LITA National Forum to a limited number of graduate students enrolled in ALA accredited programs. The Forum will be held October 1 – 4, 2009 at the Hilton City Center Hotel, Salt Lake City, UT. To learn more about the Forum, visit http://www.lita.org/ala/mgrps/divs/lita/litaevents/forum2009/index.cfm
In exchange for the discounted registration, students will assist the LITA organizers and the Forum presenters with the on-site operations for the Forum. This year’s theme is “Open and Mobile.” We are anticipating an attendance of 400-500 decision makers and implementers of new information technologies in libraries.
The selected students will be expected to attend the full LITA National Forum, Friday noon through Sunday noon, but not the pre-conferences on Thursday and Friday. You will be assigned a variety of duties, but will be able to attend the Forum programs, which include 3 keynote sessions, approximately 30 concurrent sessions, and 12 poster presentations.
The student rate is $175 – half the regular registration rate for LITA members. This rate includes a Friday night reception at the hotel, continental breakfasts, and Saturday lunch.
To apply for the student registration rate, please provide the following information:
1) Complete contact information including email address,
2) The name of the school you are attending, and
3) 150 word (or less) statement on why you want to attend the LITA National Forum
