Brown University to Host Code4Lib 2009

By now pretty much everyone knows (since it was announced at Code4Lib 2008), but in the interest of the historical record, let it show that Brown University will be hosting Code4Lib 2009. They submitted the winning proposal that will bring all library coders who can make it to Providence, Rhode Island in February 2009. We hope to see you there!

Karen Coyle Keynote - R&D: Can Resource Description become Rigorous Data?

Work is beginning to transform the eloquent yet arcane texts called
"library cataloging records" into data elements that will play well in
the Web. Beginning with the upcoming revised cataloging rules, called
Resource Description and Access, a team of researchers is exploring the
abstract model behind bibliographic description. Coyle will cover the
philosophy behind the project and will discuss current progress and
goals, as well as fears, risks, and even some confusion.

Code4libcon 2008 Breakout Sessions

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 at least 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.
