Code4Lib seeks to provide a welcoming, fun, and safe community and conference experience and ongoing community for everyone. We do not tolerate harassment in any form. Discriminatory language and imagery (including sexual) is not appropriate for any event venue, including talks, or any community channel such as the chatroom or mailing list.
Harassment is understood as any behavior that threatens another person or group, or produces an unsafe environment. It includes offensive verbal comments or non-verbal expressions related to gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religious beliefs, sexual or discriminatory images in public spaces (including online), deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Please take a moment to consider the varied relationships that different communities have with the police before involving them in a situation.
Confidential suicide prevention hotline available to anyone in suicidal crisis or emotional distress. Your call is routed to the nearest crisis center in the national network of more than 150 crisis centers. All services are available 24/7.
During all days of the conference, including pre-conference and sponsored evening activities, there will be Community Support Volunteers available to help provide support for anyone who has been harassed, threatened, abused, or feels the CodeOfConduct4Lib has been violated during the conference.

Community Support Volunteers are also present on various online code4lib platforms, primarily Slack. IRC and the #c4l20 conference hashtag feed have some coverage as well, but if you should observe or experience a code of conduct violation on IRC or the hashtag, please contact the community support volunteers via Slack, email, or the anonymous reporting form.
All community support volunteers attending the event — look for the black & white striped lanyards!
Do not photograph, film, or audio-record anyone at Code4Lib without their expressly-given permission beforehand. Color- and pattern-coded lanyards are available at the registration desk to help indicate the wearer’s preference for photography ONLY. Please note, regardless of lanyards, you must always ask before filming or audio-recording attendees.
