The Committee on Information Technology will advise on ways the MLA can encourage activities in technology useful to the membership and the association. It will identify projects from time to time that might be undertaken by the committee or the association. These projects will vary according to needs and new developments in the field; projects may deal with different aspects of technology, such as computer-assisted instruction, text-based research, electronic publication, and electronic communication. The committee will advise the staff and the council on proposals and requests relating to technology that come from members or other organizations.

The ongoing activities of the committee will include disseminating information through the MLA Newsletter, organizing convention sessions, and helping the staff maintain contacts with other associations and organizations involved with the humanistic applications of technology.
