Libraries and Transliteracy + LITA = Interest Group

All of us at L & T are proud to announce that while at ALA Annual in June an Interest Group was approved, thanks to LITA (The Library and Information Technology Association) specifically for Libraries and Transliteracy!

With that, here is some information over the group, how to join, and how to communicate with us!


The objective of the Transliteracy Interest Group is to explore, develop and promote the role of libraries in all aspects of literacy including, but not limited to, digital, media, social, computer, and 21st century literacies


We’ll be using ALA connect for communication within the interest group. Keep in mind that you do not have to be a member to join ALA connect, it’s open to any and everyone! So, join and start sharing with us and others.

Committee chairs 2010-2011:

With all interest groups, you have people who are set in place to help answer any questions, concerns, or comments that you might have about the group. The people responsible for that function are listed below.
