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.

One of the benefits of the position is my ability to telecommute from home. One of my first actions in my new position was to look for resources for telecommuting librarians and a place to be able to network and have discussions with other telecommuters on a regular and ongoing basis.
