ER&L + ProQuest #ideadrop house

The ER&L #ideadrop house will serve as a seriously fun place to drop ideas and a seriously great opportunity to dialogue about topics affecting libraries when the creative juices are flowing and where the big ideas are percolating. 
In coordination with other forward thinking library and info people (like the #sxswLAM = Librar*, Archiv* & Museum* group, Digital Library Federation and EveryLibrary), ER&L + ProQuest #ideadrop house supports bringing the value of libraries to the world and learning from the best and brightest in tech, public policy, social media and creative communities to libraryland. In coordination with other LAM-focused houses and activities, ER&L + ProQuest #ideadrop house will be an informal meeting space –less than 3 miles from the convention center and convenient to public transit–offering salon style small group discussions for people in the space and broadcast out to the broader community, and just a great time with people who are all about libraries!
