Historical note

The Library Staff Association (LSA) is a staff organization at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The LSA sponsors various activities. Activities are planned by the LSA Committee, who send out the call for help with upcoming events. Funds for LSA activities come from the interest on an account established in 1967 by the officers of LSA at that time and can be used in almost any way the organization chooses.
