2014 SXSWi LAM Proposals

on Thu, 08/22/2013 - 05:48

To shift the perceptions of libraries from a warehouse of books to dynamic places that celebrate ideas, we need to share library innovations far and wide with diverse audiences in unique formats. SXSW Interactive is a major annual gathering of thought-leaders and funders – “fostering creative and professional growth alike, SXSW® is the premier destination for discovery.” (Sounds a lot like the library!)

There are a slew of incredible submissions this year proposed by creative library and museum professionals. You can help put libraries, archives, and museums (LAM) at the forefront of this ideas-exchange by voting for LAM presentations in the SXSWi Panel Picker from Aug. 19-Sept. 6, 2013, at http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/.  Below is a list of sxswLAM panel proposals and well as sxswLAM-related panel proposals.  You can also do a search by keyword in the Panel Picker for “library” or “libraries”and there are dozens more. If you believe that librarian voices need to be heard, even if you’re not attending, we need your vote to make it happen at SXSWi 2014.

Here’s a brief blogpost that explains the logistics of picking a panel. You are required to create an account to vote.
