Publication Proposal Form

The Library And Information Technology Association publishes the popular LITA Guide Series, full-length works on practical, technical topics. We encourage you to fill out the proposal form if you are interested in authoring a publication or have suggestions for publications.

Our Publications Committee is always interested in finding and encouraging new authors. We deliberately seek and strongly encourage submissions from underrepresented groups, such as women, people of color, the LGBTQA+ community, and people with disabilities.

By default, ALA owns the copyright on LITA Guides, but authors can request to retain copyright themselves.

Questions or comments can be sent to Marta Deyrup, LITA Acquisitions Editor.
