SXSW Interactive (SXSWi) is an annual technology conference in Austin, TX. Companies like Twitter and Foursquare were either launched at SXSWi, or they used it as a platform for achieving success. In this session, Senior Discovery Services Engineer Eric Frierson reports on sessions from this year’s conference that could dramatically improve the way users interact with library materials and will share early prototypes of the projects inspired by SXSWi sessions. These prototypes improve our capabilities of understanding how users interact with discovery layers and introduce contextually relevant assistance and guidance (while avoiding becoming Clippy, the Microsoft “helpful” paperclip).
