Organization addresses

Invitation to institutions

LIDA’s organizers are seeking to reach a wider audience. We invite libraries, information agencies, professional organizations, publishers, and service providers to consider participation at LIDA by providing a demonstration, workshop, or exhibit about their products, services or advances, or by presenting a paper or poster about their activities, as related to the two themes. Institutions can benefit as well by sending representatives to LIDA.¬† Course materials will be given to participants so that they can communicate and transfer topics of interest to their institution. Sponsorship opportunities are also available and new sponsors are warmly invited.
