This March, Sidsel Bech-Petersen a Library Transformer at Aarhus Public Libraries and I have proposed a session at South By Southwest Interactive. It’s called Library Machines, and essentially, it’s a discussion/workshop to explore new ideas and directions for libraries. It will be the spiritual sibling of last year’s Libraries: the Ultimate Playground.

During the Library Machines session, we’ll all go through a quick, “mad libs” style design exercise, and use that as a jumping off point for a larger discussion through the rest of the session.

1) If you’re going to be at SXSW, join us! this will be a discussion and making session, not a presentation

2) If all goes according to plan, outside this session we should be facilitating a bunch of library “innovation”-y fun stuff so reach out if you’re interested in helping! (jgoldenson AT

Give it a thumbs up, a tweet and if inspired, make an Library Machine in the comments!
