Seeking for a Local D.C. Host

Looking for any D.C. locals that could host a guest for the 2018 C4L. I'll be traveling from Philadelphia by car and am hoping to bike or metro to the Omni Shoreham Hotel. I have a potential registration that could be transferred to me if I can find boarding. Our travel budget is tight so I need to reduce as much cost as possible. Thanks all!

Dear Code4lib;

I am a library student and I love to website. I recently saw that the jobs board was recently closed. I would like to know why it was closed and if I can help in anyway. Thank you.

Code4Lib 2014 Conference Diversity Scholarship Recipients

The Scholarship Committee is pleased to announce the Code4Lib 2014 Conference Diversity Scholarship awardees. Through the generosity of CLIR/DLF, EBSCO, ProQuest, and Sumana Harihareswara, we were able to award nine $1,000 scholarships to defray costs associated with attending the conference. We received a large number of applications from highly qualified candidates this year, and it was a humbling experience for the committee to select just nine awardees. Congratulations to all Code4Lib scholarship recipients!

Code4lib 2014 Diversity Scholarships (Application Deadline: Dec. 13, 2013, 5pm EST)

For the Code4Lib 2014 Conference, 9 scholarships have been sponsored to promote diversity.

CLIR/DLF has sponsored 5 scholarships, EBSCO has sponsored 2 scholarships, ProQuest has sponsored 1 full scholarship, and Sumana Harihareswara has sponsored half a scholarship which was matched by ProQuest. All sponsors have left it up to the discretion of the Code4Lib 2014 Scholarship Committee for how to award these diversity scholarships.

The Code4Lib Scholarship Committee will award 9 diversity scholarships based on merit and need. Each scholarship will provide up to $1,000 to cover travel costs and conference fees for a qualified attendee to attend the 2014 Code4Lib Conference, which will be held in Raleigh, North Carolina, from March 24 - 27, 2014.

won the O'Reilly Open Source Award. At Valerie's request, her keynote will
be in the form of an interview, which Roy Tennant has volunteered to
conduct. Questions from the Code4Lib community will be solicited, so please
be thinking about what you would like to ask her.
