Cancellation Policy: All cancellations received on or before February 12, 2020 are eligible for a full refund of fees paid, less a 10% cancellation fee. No refunds will be issued after the February 12 cut-off date. Registrants are able to transfer completed registrations to colleagues - please contact to finalize this process.

Health & Wellness

UPDATE: Code4Lib 2020 Conference is proceeding as planned.

The health and well-being of the Code4Lib Community is very important to us. The CDC is not currently restricting travel within the United States. However, we understand that several organizations are imposing non-essential travel restrictions and individuals are making personal choices to restrict travel.

Because of this, We are actively working with our suppliers, primarily the hotel, to see what we can do to minimize the financial impact of decreased attendance. We would like to be able to provide those that have to cancel late a partial refund, but we are not certain of the possibility at this time. We are tracking those that are not able to attend and will follow up with them as information becomes available. This follow up will likely happen after the conclusion of the event.

Additionally, please remember, Code4Lib will once again stream all of the sessions on the main conference days (not the pre-conference workshops). Some sessions may be excluded if the presenter declines to allow the session to be streamed, but it’s generally very few. You can find information about this option below, under the “Can’t attend in person?” heading.

We understand that everyone has a personal decision to make, based on your research, health, and individual situation. We support you in that decision and look forward to your participation in Code4Lib 2020, whether it be in person or remote.
