CODES will be active in Orlando at ALA Annual!  On Saturday, June 25 at 10:30 am, check out our program “Harnessing Research and Data to Advance Readers’ Advisory Services” in the AM Orange County Convention Center, Room S330 C-D.  On Sunday morning at 8 am start your day with “Literary Tastes: Celebrating the Best Reading of the Year” in the Rosen Centre, Room Grand A.  This annual event has become a favorite for readers everywhere.  And you certainly won’t want to miss the Achievement Awards Ceremony and Reception at 5 pm on Sunday in the Rosen Centre, Room Grand A.  Congratulate your colleagues from CODES and other RUSA sections as we recognize their outstanding achievements.

You may be interested in a couple of other CODES committee meetings as well.  The CODES All Committee Meeting at Midwinter in Boston was so successful that we are repeating it in Orlando.  Any CODES group that does not have its own specific meeting time and place can meet during the All Committee Meeting on Saturday, June 25, at 10:30 am in the Hyatt Regency Orlando, Room Plaza BR F.  It’s also a great venue to meet colleagues and introduce yourself to other CODES members.  The Reference Publishing Advisory Committee will meet on Saturday, June 25, at 4:30 pm in Orange County Convention Center, Room W307B.   This brainstorming session is open to all and will identify trends in reference publishing to serve as future topics.  Please join us for the conversation!

It’s not too late for appointment to a CODES committee.  A few committees still have available positions.  If you’re interested in serving or have questions about CODES committees, please contact Daniel Mack, CODES Vice Chair/Chair Elect, at
