Code4LibSE 2018 @ The Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library (AUC RWWL)

The Code4Lib Southeast 2018 Conference is sponsored by Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library and Georgia State University Library. Please join us Friday, July 27th, in Atlanta, GA for the 2018 C4LSE meeting. This informal conference will feature sessions covering technology in libraries, archives and museums in the Southeast area.

Location

When - Friday, July 27th, 2018

Where - Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library, Atlanta, GA

Cost - Free! Lunch and afternoon coffee will be provided.

Optional Pre-Conference Meetup

There will be an optional social meetup from 6-9 p.m. on Thursday, July 26 (the night before the conference) at Ormsby's in west midtown Atlanta: https://www.ormsbysatlanta.com/ | 1170 Howell Mill Rd, Atlanta, GA 30318

Ormsby's is a large restaurant and bar with a few group games available (darts, bocce, table shuffleboard). Participants will be responsible for their own purchases and conduct here (the conference's Code of Conduct will apply during this meetup). And while you may choose to eat at Ormsby's, there will be no group reservations made for this meetup, so please plan accordingly.

Ormsby's can be difficult to find. It is located beneath a staircase in a shopping plaza right at the corner of the intersection of Howell Mill Road and 14th Street NW. There is free parking available in a nearby parking garage, but it would be best to carpool since it may get busy. Here are some pictures that may help:
