Who is Code4Lib?

Code4Lib is a vibrant and diverse community.

We are developers and technologists for libraries, museums, and archives who have a strong commitment to open technologies. Code4Lib began as a simple mailing list in 2003 and held its first face-to-face meeting in 2005 in Chicago. The first official annual conference was held in 2006 in Corvallis, Oregon. Nowadays, the Code4Lib community gravitates around the same listserv, an annual conference with hundreds of attendees, as well as IRC and Slack channels that are open for anyone to join. We are dedicated to being a diverse and inclusive community of technologists seeking to share ideas and build collaboration. You can read our Code of Conduct here.
