Make plans now to join your colleagues around the state for Kentucky’s only conference dedicated to information literacy - the 6th annual KLA Library Instruction Round Table (LIRT) Retreat!    
When: Friday, July 21
Where: The J. Douglas Gay Jr./Frances Carrick Thomas Library and the Cowgill Center on the campus of Transylvania University
Who: You!
The 2017 KLA LIRT Retreat is a one-day event that brings together librarians from around the state to share successful projects, collaborations, and pedagogies that have shaped information literacy at your institutions. It also provides some much-needed time and space to reconnect with colleagues and recharge your information literacy battery before the academic year begins. Registration will open to LIRT members first followed by KLA members, and if spots remain, they will be opened to non-members.
Newly-instituted for the 2016 LIRT Retreat, there will continue to be a registration fee for the retreat to continue this Retreat for years to come. LIRT members will enjoy lower registration fees and priority registration, so now would be a great time to become a LIRT member if you aren’t already! (To become a member of LIRT, please send a check for $6.00 for LIRT annual dues to KLA to add the Library Instruction Round Table to your KLA membership.)
More details about the retreat, including a call for proposals, are coming soon. Please follow along at the KLA LIRT Retreat Site for updates. For now, please save the date for this popular event. We look forward to seeing you there!
If you have any questions about the retreat or other LIRT initiatives, feel free to use this form to contact the LIRT officers.  
KLA LIRT Officers:
Samantha McClellan, Chair, University of Louisville
Robert Campbell, Chair-Elect, Transylvania University
Amber Ballinger, Secretary/Treasurer, University of Louisville
