Code4lib New York State Meeting

  • A Code4lib New York State Meeting will be held August 4-5 at Mann Library, Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. This meeting aims to be a great place to learn new skills, share ideas, and network with other library technologists from the region. The meeting is structured loosely around the “unconference” model, which encourages attendees to hold and run the activities, but with some sessions and talks planned in advance.

    This message is a reminder/announcement to save the date and start thinking about how you would like to participate. We want this meeting to be a mix of prepared and impromptu sessions; as such, we’re making it possible now for folks to propose sessions and express interest in proposals in an informal manner. We have confirmed some morning workshops, and some great breakout sessions have been proposed – you can read more about the sessions so far proposed and how to take part yourself here: http://code4libnys.github.io/2016/#sched%5Bcode4libnys.github.io%5D

    Additionally, we are very excited to say that we will end out each day with invited talks from two fantastic and engaging members of our community: Patricia Hswe and Tara Robertson. Their talks will help wrap up each day’s activities, as well as give needed context and grounding to our broader library technology work.

    Registration will be free and opened up in late May/Early June. If you’ve got any questions, you can email me.
