General information

ALA Connect now available

ALA Connect is a single virtual location in which members can collaborate and work on LITA committee and interest group projects. ALA Connect ( has launched its first phase of operation, in which every ALA group will have the ability to utilize the following tools:

• Posts (like blog posts)
• Online docs (collaborative, wiki-like pages or Google Docs)
• Group calendar
• Surveys
• Polls
• Chat room
• Discussion forums

Members who log in to Connect using their regular ALA Web site username and
password will find that their records are automatically synchronized with ALA’s membership database, so their affiliations with committees, divisions, events, round tables and sections are displayed. In addition to the formal working groups, members can also create their own communities.

If you encounter any problems or have any questions, please contact the LITA office
