Biographical Note for Library and Information Technology Association (LITA) :

The Information Science and Automation Division (ISAD) was established on January 28, 1966 to deal with the development and application of electronic data processing techniques and the use of automated systems in all areas of library work (1).

In January 1978 the names was changed to Library and Information Technology Association (LITA). Its new function was to concern itself with the development and application of automated systems analysis and design, electronic data processing techniques, communications technology, and related technological developments in all areas of library work. Within these fields, the Division fosters research, promotes the development of appropriate standards, disseminates information, and provides a forum for the discussion of common problems (2).

Division was dissolved on September 1, 2020, and merged into a new division, Core.
