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.
