Invitation to Institutions

We are inviting libraries, information agencies, professional organizations, and service providers to consider participation at LIDA by providing a demonstration, workshop, or exhibit about their advances, or by presenting a paper or poster about their activities. Sponsorship of an event is also invited. Institutions can benefit as well: We will provide course materials and virtual tutorials to participants so that they can communicate, instruct, and transfer topics of interest to their institution. Thus, we are organizing LIDA to reach a wider audience.
