Code4Lib 2009 Schedule

All conference events listed below will take place at the Renaissance Providence Hotel. Some pre-conferences may take place on the Brown University campus.

Logo Design Process Launched

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.

2009 Pre-Conferences

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.
