The Library #ideadrop house will return this year again to connect the energy of the library community with the enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit pervasive in Austin for salon-style conversations in our library living room on March 7-11, 2014. Vist in person or on the live stream here. All times listed are local Austin time/ Central time.

E-Resources and Libraries (ER&L), ProQuest and the Digital Library Federation (DLF) are joined in Austin by an awesome group of orgs representing libraries, archives and museums. Meet them all.

Christian Zabriskie

Urban Librarians Unite
Executive Director

Christian Zabriskie has been a public librarian for more than twelve years and he has, at some point in his career, done just about every job you can do in a public library.

He is the founder and Executive Director of Urban Librarians Unite, a not for profit dedicated to promoting libraries and librarianship in urban settings.

Christian is a prolific writer and speaker on a wide range of topics including activism, graphic novels, and service to urban and at risk teens. He sees the library as a key tool for social good and is an aggressive and creative proponent for the library in the community.

Christian is a friend to the underdog and has never met a lost cause he didn't want to save. He believes that with a keen tactical eye tiny organizations can have a huge and wide ranging impact on the world around them.
