Fabulous? Pfeh! The word "fabulous" blanches at its inadequacy in the face of this list.

We've got some great activities planned. Get ready for some teaching, helping, and learning.


If you're a LITA member please sign up to help with these activities. You can either edit the list directly in the wiki, or email Andy G and he'll add you.



1. Just-for-Fun Event (anytime)


What? Getting together just to get together, technology optional.

Need: Fun people up for organizing a get-together.

2. LIS Tech Overview (ready August 2008)


What? A presentation and handout that briefly describes many LIS-related technologies, to be offered September 2008 as a help to new SLISers.

Need: Normal people to point out what needs explaining; geeky people to explain it.

Who: Andy G and ...?



3. Open Source Open House (Nov 2007)
