A Brief History
The Information Technology Section officially became a section in 1996. This came about as a result of the merging of the NEMICRO and Media sections of NELA. Library technology issues, respective to each of these sessions, made apparent the need to merge since the focus of each group began to blend.
We are excited about our future in the 21st century.
- Members of NELA who are involved in, and interested in, computer hardware and software, and library media issues.
- Academic, public, school, and special librarians who work with computer and/or media technologies in our respective institutions.
- Librarians interested in keeping abreast of technology as it impacts on our professional lives.
- Librarians interested in updating our skills in these areas.
Our Goals Are:
- To provide a forum for our members to network and discuss library technology issues.
- To provide workshops and training at various sites in New England.
- To act as a clearinghouse for library technology issues.
- To provide opportunities to preview emerging technologies.
