Proposals to host the 2009 Code4Lib Conference will be accepted through Wednesday, February 20, 2008. A decision will be made the following week by popular vote. See the hosting information page for more information.
Traditionally (if two years can be called tradition) we hold a contest to pick the design for the front of the conference t-shirt. This year we did not receive many entries - in fact, we only had one official entry. Fortunately, it rocks (at least, I think so):
Design by Noel Peden

I wasn't sure I'd ever see the day that the UVa library would, as an institution, agree to open source Blacklight. But they did! [A dirty little secret is that the bulk of it, including a basic example MARC indexer, was open sourced last year during the preparation for the Solr code4lib preconference.]

I'm honored to be speaking at the upcoming OLA Super Conference 2008. I'm presenting "Collex: Collecting and exhibiting scholarly materials" (session #406, Thursday January 31, 10:40am) and " Blacklight: the University of Virginia's Catalog on Solr" (session #1203, Friday, February 1, 2:10pm). I'm looking forward to demonstrating these projects and sharing their latest news.

Though we ran into some problems getting the code4lib.org Advanced Poll module working in time, the code4lib 2008 keynote survey has been posted.
Voting is open until midnight 11/22 EST. Shortly thereafter Mike Giarlo will post response data to this list. Let your voices be heard!
