E304 - Libraries United & Influencing the World!! #sxswLAM Storm!

2:45 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Carson Block, Library IT Consultant, Carson Block Consulting Inc.

The involvement of libraries, archives, and museums at one of the biggest tech conferences in the world reached a fever pitch in 2014. A number of organizations and partners (including ALA, PLA, DPLA, ER&L, the Harvard Library Test Kitchen, EveryLibrary, and library vendors) organized under the banner of #sxswLAM (Libraries, Archives & Museums) to connect with the technology and creative community at the annual South by Southwest conference in Austin Texas. From presenting at the conference (getting in is no small feat) to hosting houses (#ideadrop house), purchasing booth space in the vendor hall, and hitting the streets with one-to-one guerilla advocacy, libraries are getting noticed. Come to this session to learn about this growing presence and how you can get involved!
