Join us in Fort Worth, Texas, at the Omni Fort Worth Hotel
in Downtown Fort Worth, for the 2016 LITA Forum, a three-day education and
networking event featuring 2 preconferences, 3 keynote sessions, more than
55 concurrent sessions and 25 poster presentations. It’s the 19th annual
gathering of the highly regarded LITA Forum for technology-minded
information professionals. Meet with your colleagues involved in new
and leading edge technologies in the library and information technology
field. Registration is limited in order to preserve the important
networking advantages of a smaller conference. Attendees take advantage of
the informal Friday evening reception, networking dinners and other social
opportunities to get to know colleagues and speakers.
