Welcome to SLIS LITA!

We're a group of IT-interested library school students at UW-Madison with a wide range of technical aptitudes and curiosities. We host lectures and workshops, we meet up to work on class projects, and we've occasionally been known engage in some geeky frivolity.



Fall 2011 Kickoff & Announcements


Social at the Rathskellar Fri 9/23, 5:00pm

Join us for a social gathering at the Memorial Union Rathskellar on Fri, September 23 at 5:00 PM.  Get to know other IT-interested library students, enjoy some beverages, and help to plan our activities for the upcoming academic year.
