And the winner is ...
We're excited to announce the publication of the fifth issue of the Code4Lib Journal. Check out our 1 year anniversary issue! And with the upcoming Code4Lib conference, don't forget to scroll down to the bottom for Noel Peden's special report on what it takes to get good conference video.
If you're active in Code4Lib and you'll be attending ALA Midwinter in Denver in January, put this on your meeting calendar:
LITA Town Hall Meeting, Monday, January 26, 8:00am - 10:00am (includes breakfast!)
Brown University, Oregon State University, and Code4lib are offering four scholarships to promote gender and cultural diversity.
All conference events listed below will take place at the Renaissance Providence Hotel. Some pre-conferences may take place on the Brown University campus.
A logo design process Working Group has been formed, with me, Ranti Junus and Emily Molanphy. To help us keep track of our process and to allow interested community members to track our work, I have created a wiki page that will serve as an ongoing record of progress. Let me know if you have any questions.
We have 8 pre-conferences for code4lib2009 -- 2 full day and 6 half day. The plan is to charge a flat $25 pre-conference fee to cover room and break costs. Plan to arrive at morning sessions beginning at 8:30 am, and afternoon sessions beginning at 1.
Two 12-passenger shuttles circling between the Renaissance and Brown will run 7:45-9:45, 11:45-1:45, 4:15-6:15. Some may prefer to walk; allow at least 20 minutes for the 1 mile walk to the John Hay Library, or 30 minutes for the 1.5 miles to the Inn at Brown. Maps will be available.

Darien Library will be hosting a Drupal4Lib Camp on Friday, February 27, 2009 from 9 am to 4 pm. It just so happens this is the day after code4lib2009 ends in nearby Providence, RI -- so you can theoretically hop on over after code4lib proper ends.
The camp will be an opportunity for libraries who are working with Drupal, or interested in implementing Drupal, to get together, share experiences, solve problems, and collaborate. This unconference will be a combination of a series of 10 min lightning talks given by Drupal veterans in the morning followed by break-out sessions in the afternoon.
Audio and video from Drupal4Lib Camp sessions will also be streamed lived online. There is no registration fee. However, participation is limited to 70. Please register for the Drupal4Lib Camp.
