Join 50 Librarians as They Tackle SXSW Interactive
by Brandi Scardilli
"This is the biggest group we've had yet," someone remarked as they gathered to pose for a picture. The "group" is lib*interactive, formerly sxswLAM (libraries, archives, and museums), and they were at the MugShots bar in Austin, Texas, at the first LAM meetup of the SXSW (South by Southwest) Interactive Festival (March 13-17, 2015). LAM representatives are a growing presence at the technology-focused conference for two main reasons: Interactive exposes the LAM fields to new and emerging tech trends, and it's a great place to advocate on behalf of LAM institutions. lib*interactive gives attendees a way to connect with other LAM representatives and engage in concerted efforts to spread the word about all of the new ways LAM spaces are engaging with technology.

The Information Advisor's Guide to Internet Research

Edited by Robert Berkman, The Information Advisor’s Guide to Internet Research explores, evaluates, and provides critical analysis of free and fee-based information resources, web-based services, and search strategies to help you maximize your time and keep you up-to-date on the internet's role in research.

IAG

In addition to at least one feature by business specialist Berkman, each issue of The Information Advisor’s Guide to Internet Research includes an in-depth article by Ran Hock, author of The Extreme Searcher book series and well-known seminar speaker, who checks out a major web resource.

Four regular columns are rotated; two appear each issue and give readers suggestions for cool internet tools to check out (Brian Smith McCallum, M.L.S., public and academic librarian); sites to turn to for more scholarly research needs (Briana McGuckin, reference and instructional librarian); sites to go to that provide information for the common good (Susan Fingerman, retired librarian instructor, STEM); and sites that give you “big data” facts and figures on a range of topics (Jackie Shane, former reference librarian).
