Announcing the LITA Online Programming Task Force

LITA needs a system or process to gather, post, and share LITA sponsored programs presented at conferences and events online.
To explore and recommend a systematic approach to gather and post LITA programs presented at events such as ALA Annual Conference, LITA National Forum, LITA Camp, etc.
  • Identify the types of programs that are presented and which are most appropriate for online posting
  • Identify other organizations such as ACRL, PLA, WebJunction, etc, who are currently providing this service to learn about their experiences
  • How should the content be delivered online i.e. live webcast, produced in a studio, screencast, etc.
  • Identify, evaluate, and analyze available systems
  • Identify which systems are best for delivering each type of program
  • Determine who should have access to what types of programs and how. This should include:
    • Identifying the appropriate delivery method
    • Who should have access. Should it be available to all LITA members, available to everyone, etc.?,
    • Should access be different for different user communities?
    • Should their be a registration fee for certain types of programming

    The OPTF has space on ALA Connect where we’re posting what we’re doing.

    Everyone is welcome to join in the fun. Please add pertinent info about ways you or the organizations with which you’re involved track the online content you produce. OPTF and LITA thank you in advance!
