Below is a list of nominations for invited speakers for Code4Lib 2011.

  • Joan Frye Williams - a sharp thinker of an extremely practical bent, I would expect her to tell us the cold, hard facts as she sees them in libraries today, which I think is what we should be hearing. - Roy
  • Diane Hillman -- has years of experience working with library metaata, starting with traditional cataloging but over the past many years moving into modern metadata for library applications. Involved in RDA schema modelling. Knows what modern metadata looks like, knows what our legacy data is like, has a lot of insight into where we need to go and how to get there -- and on how systems people can work with catalogers to do it. --jrochkind

  • George Oates -- George is the lead for the Internet Archive Open Library and has worked on the web since 1996, in a variety of roles that normally revolve around front-end design and online community. She is entirely comfortable with "amateur" metadata creation and hopes to explore this within the context of Open Library.
