Code4Lib North

Announcing a new chapter: Code4Lib North, for people in Ontario, Quebec, and nearby regions of the United States.

Local Chapters


In addition to having a discussion list, a blog aggregator, an IRC channel, an electronic journal, and an annual conference, people independently decided that it might be nice to meet in person more than once a year to talk about stuff they are working on...and to hang out and drink {beverage_of_choice} with fun & knowledgeable people. This page lists the chapters we know about, and is where you can add a local meeting if you want to start one.

Local Chapters


  1. Announce your intent to start a local chapter on the code4lib discussion list
  2. Use drupal here at to start creating content about your group
  3. Or if you want to use your own site, get a {your_chapter} DNS record set up.
  4. Use the rsingerbold voting machine to help you gather consensus
  5. Keep us up to date on code4lib discussion list so people know about meetings
  6. Post meeting notes, audio, video, anything to relevant websitesHave fun!

In case you haven't seen the discussion on the code4lib list, the New England chapter of code4lib is pulling itself up from its own bootstraps. They're self-organizing using a wiki and are currently voting on a venue for the first meeting.

If you are interested in starting your own local chapter, check out (and make better) the new code4lib local page.
