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.
When - Friday, July 27th, 2018
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. 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:
The conference will be held in the Virginia Lacy Jones Exhibition Hall on the upper level of the AUC Robert W. Woodruff Library. Lunch will be served onsite in the same location.
