DLF Supports Live Streaming from #ideadrop House at SXSWi


The Digital Library Federation (DLF) will support live streaming and recording of discussions from the #ideadrop House at South by Southwest Interactive (SXSWi), March 8–12, in Austin, Texas.


Sponsored by Electronic Resources and Libraries (ER&L) and ProQuest, the #ideadrop House will be a place for librarians to gather for salon-style group discussions about the future of libraries and academic librarianship.


“By sponsoring live streaming from the house, we aim to release those hallway conversations, debriefs after interesting sessions, serendipitous connections—the important networking experiences you have when attending a conference—to those who are tuning into the conference via the web,” said DLF Program Director Rachel Frick. “Partnering with Bonnie Tijerina (of ER&L) and ProQuest on the #ideadrop House has been a great experience.”


The #ideadrop House is open to all. Certain sessions have participation limits and require an RSVP. To learn more about the events happening there, visit the schedule. The live stream will be available at 11AM Central Time today, Friday, March 8 through 5PM Monday, March 11.


DLF is also sponsoring the SXSWi panel, “Culture Hack: Libraries & Museums Open for Making,” at 11AM on Monday, March 11, which will address publishing collection data as an open resource to be reused by others.
