Code4Lib 2014 Conference Prospectus for Sponsors

The Code4Lib 2014 Sponsorship Committee has put together a prospectus for potential sponsors (see attached file). This full-color PDF file describes the conference, lists representative past speakers, provides quotes from attendees, and lists all of the sponsorship opportunities and their attached benefits to sponsors.

If you wish to contact a potential sponsor, please contact the committee before doing so to prevent multiple contacts of the same sponsor.

This is the first time that such a brochure has been created in support of obtaining conference sponsorships, so the 2014 crew gets major kudos for stepping up our game this year. Tim McGeary of UNC Chapel Hill is the committee chair.

Ask Anything!

Ask Anything!


Wherein you ask...anything, a.k.a. "Human Search Engine". A chance for you to ask a roomful of code4libbers anything that's on your mind: questions seeking answers (short or long), requests for things (hardware, software, skills, or help), or offers of things. We'll keep the pace fast, and the answers faster.

Come with questions and line up at the start of the session and we'll go through as many as we can; sometimes we'll stop at finding the right person or people to answer a query and it'll be up to you to find each other after the session. If you don't ask questions, you get a stand-up routine, and poorly told jokes. (No pirates this year...)

Facilitated by Carmen Mitchell, California State University, San Marcos.
