Looking forward to presenting a “tools you can use” session about SXSW 2015! Carson Block Live! On Libraries and SXSW!
If you’re in the Chi area join us at the Laconi (Learning – Sharing – Networking) event on Friday, June 5 in Oak Park IL!

Libraries help people, and Carson helps libraries. It’s that simple!
Libraries and South by Southwest (SXSW)
Library activity at the annual SXSW Interactive and EDU conferences in Austin TX is at a fever pitch!
As a place of convergence, the conferences are a place to learn about and experience new technologies *before* they become mainstream.
Library workers of all disciplines pony up the significant cost to attend SXSW to:
- Evangelize libraries
- And bring back new ideas that they can use
Come learn about both efforts — and ask questions about SXSW!
