Indiana University Bloomington



Code4Lib 2011 conference attendees: We cannot wait to welcome you to the beautiful city of Bloomington and the flagship campus of Indiana University. Drawing software development experts from all areas of library and information science, this year’s event promises countless opportunities to share the best in software development tools and ideas.

The conference will take place in the Indiana Memorial Union (IMU) at IU Bloomington. We are indebted to the members of the local organizing, program, and voting committees for their tireless planning efforts  – and to you, the participants, for making this event so unforgettable and important to the library community.

As this year's conference hosts, the Indiana University Libraries and University Information Technology Services (UITS) are bringing together a wide-ranging group of developers from academia, the information industry, and public libraries.

Together, we hope to deliver not only an excellent technical program, but also a pervasive social program that brings all of us together in new ways. After all, Bloomington is a vibrant city, rich in college-and home-town appeal, as well as diverse cuisines, arts, and music.

We look forward to seeing you soon, and wish you a heartfelt welcome to the Code4Lib 2011 Conference.
