This blog, presented by the Maine State Library, is intended for the staff and volunteers of Maine libraries. We're looking to provide technological awareness, vision and advice that's pertinent to all libraries, no matter the size or budget.
"The Library and Information Technology Association(LITA) is the leading organization reaching out across types of libraries to provide education and services for a broad membership...LITA is concerned with the planning, development, design, application, and integration of technologies within the library and information environment, with the impact of emerging technologies on library service, and with the effect of automated technologies on people. Its major focus is on interdisciplinary issues and emerging technologies. LITA disseminates information, provides educational opportunities for learning about information technologies and forums for the discussion of common concerns, monitors new technologies with potential applications in information science, encourages and fosters research, promotes the development of technical standards, and examines the effects of library systems and networks."
