code4lib is an IRC channel, a mailing list, and a conference for folks interested in the convergence of computers and library/information science. The channel grew out of the email list as a more informal and interactive way to discuss code, projects, ide

Code4Lib Journal Issue 38 Call for Papers

Mon, 12 Jun 2017 15:17:09 +0000

Topic: 

The Code4Lib Journal (C4LJ) exists to foster community and share information among those interested in the intersection of libraries, technology, and the future.

We are now accepting proposals for publication in our 38th issue. Don't miss out on this opportunity to share your ideas and experiences. To be included in the 38th issue, which is scheduled for publication in mid October, 2017, please submit articles, abstracts, or proposals at http://journal.code4lib.org/submit-proposal or to journal@code4lib.org by Friday, Friday, July 14, 2017. When submitting, please include the title or subject of the proposal in the subject line of the email message.

C4LJ encourages creativity and flexibility, and the editors welcome submissions across a broad variety of topics that support the mission of the journal. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Practical applications of library technology (both actual and hypothetical)
  • Technology projects (failed, successful, or proposed), including how they were done and challenges faced
  • Case studies
  • Best practices
  • Reviews
  • Comparisons of third party software or libraries
  • Analyses of library metadata for use with technology
  • Project management and communication within the library environment
  • Assessment and user studies

C4LJ strives to promote professional communication by minimizing the barriers to publication. While articles should be of a high quality, they need not follow any formal structure. Writers should aim for the middle ground between blog posts and articles in traditional refereed journals. Where appropriate, we encourage authors to submit code samples, algorithms, and pseudo-code. For more information, visit C4LJ's Article Guidelines or browse articles from the first 36 issues published on our website: http://journal.code4lib.org.

Remember, for consideration for the 38th issue, please send proposals, abstracts, or draft articles to journal@code4lib.org no later than Friday, July 14, 2017.

Send in a submission. Your peers would like to hear what you are doing.

C4L17: Call for Presentation/Panel proposals

Fri, 14 Oct 2016 16:05:05 +0000

Topic: 

Code4Lib 2017 is a loosely-structured conference that provides people working at the intersection of libraries/archives/museums/cultural heritage and technology with a chance to share ideas, be inspired, and forge collaborations. For more information about the Code4Lib community, please visit http://code4lib.org/about/.

The conference will be held at the Luskin Conference Center at UCLA, from March 6, 2017 - March 9, 2017. More information about Code4lib 2017 will be coming soon.

We encourage all members of the Code4Lib community to submit a proposal for a prepared talk. Prepared talks should focus on one or more of the following areas:

-Projects you've worked on which incorporate innovative implementation of existing technologies and/or development of new software
- Tools and technologies – How to get the most out of existing tools, standards, and protocols (and ideas on how to make them better)
- Technical issues – Big issues in library technology that are worthy of community attention or development
- Relevant non-technical issues – Concerns of interest to the Code4Lib community which are not strictly technical in nature, e.g. collaboration, diversity, organizational challenges, etc.

This year, in order to provide increased opportunities for a diversity of speakers and topics, we'll be soliciting 10, 15, and 20 minute talks. You'll be asked to indicate which talk lengths you would be willing to accommodate for your proposal. We are also considering holding a poster session at this year's conference. If you would be interested in presenting your topic as a poster, please indicate so on the form.

In addition to "traditional" presentations and posters, we plan to include a panel session this year. If you have a topic you'd like to suggest for a panel, and are willing to work with the Program Committee to organize / recruit for the session, please use the following form.
https://goo.gl/forms/q2KbVcO4ntkh6bPp1

As in past years, the Code4Lib community will vote on proposals that they would like to see included in the program. The top 10 proposals are guaranteed a slot of their preferred length at the conference. The Program Committee will curate the remainder of the program in an effort to ensure diversity in program content and presenters. Community votes will, of course, still weigh heavily in these decisions.

Presenters whose proposals are selected for inclusion in the program will have conference registration slots held for them (up to 2 speakers per talk). In addition, panel participants will have registration slots held. The standard conference registration fee will apply.

Proposals can be submitted through November 7, 2016 at midnight PST (GMT−8). Voting will start on November 16, 2016 and continue through December 7, 2016. The URL to submit votes will be announced on the Code4Lib website and mailing list and will require an active code4lib.org account to participate. The final list of presentations will be announced in December.

Thank you,
The Code4Lib 2017 Program Committee

The 2017 conference will be held from March 6 through March 9 in the at the Luskin Conference Center at UCLA. With a very large and modern conference center at our disposal, Code4Lib 2017 will be able to accommodate the growing number of attendees while also retaining that small, tight-knit Code4Lib community feeling of previous years. We hope you can come join us!

More information about this year's conference is available on the 2017 conference website.

It’s shaping up to be a great conference this year, and there will be lots more opportunities to volunteer. Our team is looking forward to seeing you on March 6!

Creating Tomorrow’s Technologists: Contrasting Information Technology Curriculum in North American Library and Information Science Graduate Programs against Code4lib Job Listings by Monica Maceli recently appeared in the Journal of Education for Library and Information Science 56.3 (DOI:10.12783/issn.2328-2967/56/3/3). As the title states, it studies listings on jobs.code4lib.org:

This research study explores technology-related course offerings in ALA-accredited library and information science (LIS) graduate programs in North America. These data are juxtaposed against a text analysis of several thousand LIS-specific technology job listings from the Code4lib jobs website. Starting in 2003, as a popular library technology mailing list, Code4lib has since expanded to an annual conference in the United States and a job-posting website. The study found that database and web design/development topics continued to dominate course offerings with diverse sub-topics covered. Strong growth was noted in the area of user experience but a lack of related jobs for librarians was identified. Analysis of the job listings revealed common technology-centric librarian and non-librarian job titles, as well as frequently correlated requirements for technology skillsets relating to the popular foci of web design/development and metadata. Finally, this study presents a series of suggestions for LIS educators in order that they continue to keep curriculum aligned with current technology employment requirements.
