Meets LITA’s strategic goals for Education and Professional Development
Investigated, approved, and launched a call for submissions for a new quarterly column, Public Libraries Leading the Way, focused on information technology and public libraries. Announced in the December issue, this column proposal form (https://goo.gl/forms/mCZ2KdLtiwYpsnQ43) will be publicized on the LITA Blog. The Editorial Board is excited to launch this new column as part of our desire to expand regular ITAL readership beyond our home division.

What will your group be working on for the next three months?
Publicity for the new public library-focused column, Public Libraries Leading the Way, and regular oversight of the journal. I am also hoping to resume scanning and publishing issues of ITAL to round out the online backfile.
