View this session on the SXSW Offical Schedule

Hosted by the Knight Foundation: Librarians and their partners are working to advance libraries in the digital age to meet new needs in their communities. Libraries are expanding their work, forging collaborations and rethinking their services. In this session past Knight News Challenge Libraries winners will discuss their work and how they hope innovation can lead to vibrant libraries of the future. The submission period for the next Knight News Challenge on Libraries will be open during SXSW. The challenge is an open call from Feb. 21 - March 24 for ideas with $3 million in funding for projects that answer the question: “How might libraries serve 21st century information?”
