LITA Forum: Call for Participation in 5-Minute Madness

This will be held during one of the concurrent sessions and will feature nine five-minute mini-talks. We invite you to participate and share information about a project of interest to LITA members that perhaps wasn't "jelled" when we issued the formal call for participation. Speakers are strictly held to five minutes, and then there is a Q&A period for all speakers at the end. This year's session will be held Saturday, October 18, 10:50am - noon.
