LITA is excited to announce a new program designed to make conference attendance more approachable, foster inclusion, and build connections. Inspired by the GLBTRT Buddy Program, we hope that this program will help us to foster stronger relationships among LITA members who attend conferences and also make attendance more enjoyable and rewarding for everyone who participates. We will be offering this program for the first time at Midwinter 2017.

For more information or to apply, see the Conference Buddy website:


The deadline to apply will be January 1, 2017.
