Carson and Andrea just presented... Let's break it down on the stream.
Libraries have grown far beyond the nostalgic scent of books on shelves (though we still have that too). There is an explosive realm of content-wrangling that occurs on the library frontier making life-changing impacts in literacy, health, and education. There is also exists a quagmire of metadata messes, licensing loops, and lack-luster technology that is overdue for an innovative shakeup.
This is a unique setting to bring to the table the wide cast of SXSW tech & entrepreneurial attendees with some of the most grassroots, forward-thinking librarians & information professionals thinking outside-the-box today. Together we can build castles in the sandbox to connect new ideas with immediate impacts. Let's get this collaborative conversation started!
