* Lodging
** We have blocked off rooms for 10/13 & 10/14 at the [http://www.sheratoniowacity.com/ Sheraton Iowa City] as the official hotel. The group name is "Code4Lib". These rooms are available at a discounted rate ($99/night, wifi included), and are held on a first come first served basis. Reservations must be booked by '''September 14, 2013''' or the rooms will be released back to the public. It's a pretty nice hotel, and a pleasant, easy walk through downtown Iowa City to the room where we'll be meeting. The Sheraton has an attached parking garage; ask about parking when you call to reserve a room.
* Transportation
** '''Bus -''' [http://www.greyhound.com/ Greyhound], [http://us.megabus.com/ Megabus] (routes to Iowa City from Chicago, Omaha, Des Moines)
** '''Air - ''' [http://www.eiairport.org/ Eastern Iowa Airport](CID) is the closest airport (22 miles); [http://www.crshuttle.com/ Cedar Rapids Airport Shuttle] can get you to and from the airport (reserve in advance). [http://www.qcairport.com/ Quad City International Airport] (MLI) is 66 miles away, but flights are often cheaper; unfortunately, a shuttle or taxi to/from there might cost you almost as much as your flight.
** '''Driving -''' Iowa City is off of I-80, which every Midwesterner should know how to get to :)  There are several [http://en.parkopedia.com/parking/building/john-pappajohn-business-building-johnson-ia/ public parking structures] around campus, in easy walking distance to both the Sheraton (conference hotel) and Pappajohn Business Building (meeting room).
