The intelligent use of technology in libraries continues to be one of our most crucial challenges. For those of us who became librarians because we loved to explore the book stacks, we are now finding new ways to explore both old and new content in digital form. With issue 6 of the Code4Lib Journal we hope you will find new ways to explore, experiment, and bring to your library users what they want and need.

See you next year in Asheville

Code4Lib 2009 Lightning Talks

Lightning talks on are scheduled on all three days of the conference. A lightning talk is a fast paced 5 minute talk on a topic of your choosing. If you'd like to do a lightning talk please add your name and topic to the flipchart that will be available at the conference. You can do more than one if you want, but if the slots fill up (there are 39 of them) you might have to choose which one you want to do.

In The Code4Lib Wiki: Design Patterns For Collaborative Code

I've experimentally created a section on the code4lib wiki for "Patterns for Collaborative Code". Design Patterns (or "architectural patterns", or "good rules of thumb") to make your open source 'more open', more amenable to distributed development and use at multiple institutions without forking.

Code4Lib Logo Debuts

The ad hoc Code4Lib Logo committee (Ranti Junus, Emily Molanphy and Roy Tennant) is pleased to announce the new Code4Lib logo designed by Stephanie Brinley of Adelie Design. The logo web page links to all the various derivatives and versions, as well as guidelines for use. Those who are curious about the process can read about it at the logo design process page.

Code4Lib 2009 Breakout Sessions

Those interested in the same project/problem can hang out in a space together for 70 minute blocks. Generally the person who suggests the topic will take on the role as moderator to begin and moderate the discussion. Anyone can propose a breakout session - please think about whether you would want a session to be held on Tuesday or Wednesday, depending on the order of talks and who you hope will attend. There are five rooms available each day, including the large meeting room, and we will route different proposed sessions to the different rooms depending on a quick show-of-hands survey just before each one begins.

This page will list any sessions proposed before the conference itself, but there will also be flip charts outside the meeting room where more sessions can be proposed.
