ALCTS, LITA and LLAMA collaborate for virtual forum

LITA Blog - Thu, 2019-10-31 10:58

CHICAGO — The Association for Library Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS), the Library and Information Technology Association (LITA) and the Library Leadership & Management Association (LLAMA) have collaborated to create The Exchange, an interactive, virtual forum designed to bring together experiences, ideas, expertise and individuals from these American Library Association (ALA) divisions. Modeled after the 2017 ALCTS Exchange, the Exchange will be held May 4, May 6 and May 8 in 2020 with the theme “Building the Future Together.”

As a fully online interactive forum, the Exchange will give participants the opportunity to share the latest research, trends and developments in collections, leadership, technology, innovation, sustainability and collaborations. Participants from diverse areas of librarianship will find the three days of presentations, panels and activities both thought-provoking and highly relevant to their current and future career paths. The Exchange will engage an array of presenters and participants, facilitating enriching conversations and learning opportunities. Everyone, members and non-members alike, are encouraged to register and bring their questions, experiences and perspectives to the events. Registration opens Nov. 4.

The Exchange Working Group welcomes proposals for the May 2020 forum that highlight the innovation happening in the profession and that span across areas that may have been traditionally siloed. Proposal topics should be relevant to the overarching theme, as well as the daily themes for each session. Daily themes include leadership and change management, continuity and sustainability, and collaborations and cooperative endeavors. The deadline for proposals is Dec. 6. Proposals can be submitted using the Presentation Proposal Form.

Before submitting a proposal, visit the Exchange website to learn what makes a strong proposal, view the success criteria, and check out the session formats.

The Exchange is presented by the Association for Library Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS), the Library and Information Technology Association (LITA) and the Library Leadership & Management Association (LLAMA), divisions of the American Library Association. To get more information about the proposed future for joint projects such as the Exchange, join the conversation about #TheCoreQuestion.
