ELUNA 2020 Developers Day+


Novel Coronavirus Update 3/16/2020

Ex Libris and ELUNA continue to closely monitor developments pertaining to the Novel Coronavirus and are following the guidance of the WHO, CDC and relevant government authorities. The ELUNA Steering Committee, Ex Libris, and the volunteer planning committee greatly appreciated your feedback related to how this now global pandemic is affecting institutions, and how this may affect your attendance to the Annual Meeting in May. We are currently exploring all options for the event, and expect to have announced a more definitive course of action by 4/1/2020.

We appreciate your patience as we work through various scenarios with hotel and service vendors related to rescheduling or cancelling an event of this size. We ask for continued patience as conversations with vendors proceed.  After we have finalized decisions on these events, we can (volunteer and financial resources permitting) turn our attention to determining if options for virtual education events are feasible.

In the meantime, if you cannot attend, we will now waive our registration cancellation fee. You can cancel your own registration using the information sent in your registration confirmation. Also remember to cancel your hotel reservation to avoid being charged. If you have questions about the cancellation process, please contact contact.eluna@gmail.com.

If you have travelled to, travelled through, or are coming directly from a location that the CDC lists in the level 2 or level 3 health notice, Ex Libris and ELUNA ask that you follow International travel policy and look to attend in a future year.

Prior to finalizing travel plans, we recommend all attendees follow the direct guidance of local institution policy related to funding and booking travel.  In the case of event cancellation, restrictions on government or institutional travel, or attendee decision not to attend the event, ELUNA and Ex Libris are not responsible for reimbursement of travel costs.

ELUNA Developers Day+ Overview

Developers Day brings together librarians and developers to create new and innovative services and solutions. The goal of this event is to highlight community projects, provide opportunities for hands-on learning, and foster collaborations.

The hands-on workshops will be oriented towards both novice and experienced developers, and will give attendees the opportunity to work directly with Ex Libris system APIs with the guidance and support of peers.
