South by Southwest (SXSW) is an annual conference of film, interactive media, and music festivals held in Austin, TX. SXSW Interactive kicks off today, March 11th, at 2:30p with President Barack Obama as the keynote speaker!
Librarians attend SXSW Interactive to participate in conversations about technology, to develop partnerships, to find new ideas to implement in their home libraries, and more. This is a chance for librarians to connect with people in other industries and be inspired by technology, inventions, and promotions to create new services and programs.
There will be librarian meet-ups and after-hours, and a booth sponsored by the American Library Association. Check out more details and schedules on the lib*interactive website. Find more information about speakers and events at SXSW Interactive.
