Mobile Computing Interest Group (LITA)

Discussion IG Function Statement draft

by Cody Hanson on Thu, Jul 9, 2009 at 02:05 pm

Our Interest Group Formation Petition has a field for a "function statement". This is what I've come up with, but I welcome any suggestions or edits:

"The Mobile Computing IG recognizes that the universe of platforms for communication and information delivery is growing and fragmenting. We provide a forum for LITA members to discuss ways to deliver services and engage users beyond the desktop."

Librarians at all levels are challenged by the need for a new generation of
leadership and for profound reshaping of the library as institution. Newer
librarians full of enthusiasm and fresh ideas need organizational help to
ensure their contributions have greatest impact. Senior librarians have
administrative responsibility for the library's future but need help in
rethinking its structures. This program offers concrete suggestions about
how library leadership can be shared in this transformative time.

Speakers:  Jill Canono (Leadership Consultant at State Library and Archives
of Florida), Olivia Madison (Dean of the Library at Iowa State University),
Nanette Donohue (Technical Services Manager, Champaign Public Library)
