Seven of the 17 LITA Interest Groups responded to repeated requests for their plans at the 2009 ALA Midwinter Meeting.
You’ll find those plans here, on the LITA Wiki.
One of the other ten IGs has since noted that it’s not meeting at all during Midwinter.
That leaves nine unaccounted for–nine IGs for which one of the following must be true:
- The IG doesn’t actually exist, or has no chair, or the chair never reported an email address to LITA.
- The chair won’t deal with email or lists because, you know, they’re so 20th century.
- The (repeated) request to provide a one-paragraph email response required an unconscionable amount of effort and was ignored.
- The IG has no plans.
- The IG has no interest in attracting new members.
Which of those is true for each of the nine remaining non-responding IGs? Your guess is as good as mine.
NOTE: Don’t send me more plans. Update the wiki directly. It’s not that hard.
