Call for Proposals, LITA @ ALA Annual 2019

Submit your program ideas for the 2019 ALA Annual Conference

Washington DC, June 20-25, 2019

LITA is now encouraging the submission of innovative and creative proposals for the 2019 Annual American Library Association Conference. We’re looking for 60 minute conference presentations. The focus should be on technology in libraries, whether that’s use of, new ideas for, trends in, or interesting/innovative projects being explored – it’s all for you to propose. Programs should be of interest to all library/information agency types, that inspire technological change and adoption, and generally go above and beyond the everyday.

  • Submission Deadline: August 31, 2018
  • Final Decisions: November 9, 2018
  • Schedule of Sessions Announced: December 5, 2018

Proposals will be accepted via one submission site for all ALA Divisions, RoundTables, Committees and Offices. This link to the submission site will redirect to the ALA log-in page. All submitters are required to have an ALA profile, but are not required to be ALA members.

Information on pre-conference submissions is forthcoming.

Help and details on making a successful submission are on the LITA Forms web site.

We regularly receive many more proposals than we can program into the slots available to LITA at the ALA Annual Conference. These great ideas and programs all come from contributions like yours. Submissions are open to anyone, regardless of ALA membership status. We welcome proposals from anyone who feels they have something to offer regarding library technology. We look forward to hearing the great ideas you will share with us this year.
