Volunteer Opportunities

OLITA’s volunteers are critical to our success, and work with the association in a number of different capacities. Volunteering for OLITA has a range of benefits: You will meet new people working in a variety of environments, be encouraged to learn about new technologies, and discuss the latest trends in library tech. If you’re interested in helping out or have any suggestions for upcoming events and initiatives, please do not hesitate to let us know.
