code4lib 2013 During the Conference Volunteers

Hospitality Suite Committee

This committee makes arrangements for any hospitality suite amenities (technology, snacks, games, icebreakers...) we may want. N.B. This year's suite will have a curfew of 11 pm, for the sake of the neighboring rooms

  • Becky Yoose(b.yoose at gmail dot com) -- Grinnell College
  • Ranti Junus (ranti.junus at gmail dot com) -- Michigan State University

Welcome Wagon Committee

Offers conference newcomers an opportunity to self-identify; offers oldtimers an opportunity to meet newcomers. May also want to constitute a year-round variation for #code4lib.

  • Becky Yoose(b.yoose at gmail dot com) -- Grinnell College
  • Rosalyn Metz (rosalynmetz at gmail dot com) -- The George Washington University

Social Networking

Responsible for non-IRC social networking presence.

For 2014, we might assign 1-2 person(s) to take questions for sessions (assuming there's time) via Twitter/IRC. Just a thought.

IRC Evangelists

Demonstrate how to get onto #code4lib during Registration. Offer support for newcomers in #code4lib during the conference.

  • Mark - anarchivist
  • Ross - rsinger
  • Jon - jtgorman
  • Gabriel - gsf
  • Michael - mjgiarlo
  • Becky - yo_bj
  • Cynthia - Arty-chan

IRC Access

Look into technology/procedures to make connecting to, and maintaining a connection to, IRC less painful.

  • Mark - anarchivist

Video Committee

Video archiving and video streaming possibilities.

Registration Desk Volunteers

We need 1-2 volunteers to hang out at the registration desk. Also, an additional volunteer with wireless access knowledge would be helpful on the Registration Desk to answer tech questions.

Session Timer Volunteers

People who volunteer to sit up front, keep time (and bring timer equipment - i.e. a laptop with a stopwatch program). It's good to have two people in each slot to back each other up in case of machinery failure.
