Conference Venue

Code4Lib 2024 will be held at University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

The general conference will take place in the Michigan League on Central Campus. Visit lodging and transportation for information about getting here, bus systems, parking, and more. See the land acknowledgment to learn about whose land we'll be gathering on.

The Michigan League is located at 911 North University Ave and accessible through the main North University Ave building entrance. There is also an entrance off Ingalls Mall on the west side of the building that requires using stairs. A third entrance on the north side of the building has a ramp and door opener, but is not considered accessible.

Navigating the building

Conference events — including the registration table and a Quiet Room — will all be on floor 2. We have a single room reserved on floor 1 for use by the Community Support Squad if private conversations are needed.

There is a wheelchair accessible elevator in the center of the building. After entering through the main entrance, proceed straight down the corridor. About halfway down, you’ll find the elevator on the right after passing the lobby and central stairs. Get to floor 2 via stairs using the front stairwell after entering the building or the central stairwell in the middle.

Restrooms are available on each floor. There is a single-stall restroom on floor 3 labeled as a family restroom that’s available to all. The Spectrum Center also maintains a list of gender inclusive restrooms on campus.

See our League floor plan noting where events will be held. We will have physical copies available at the registration desk as well.


Workshops will primarily be held in School of Information classrooms in North Quad, with one on North Campus in the Bentley Historical Library.

North Quad

North Quad is about 2-blocks from the League at 105 S. State St and has two, physically separated towers (one with academic offices, the other with a residence hall and classrooms). Use the main entrance to the tallest tower, which is around the corner from the street address in the southeast part of the building near Thayer and E. Washington St. The entrance is on a plaza and there is a ramp up to handicap accessible doors.

Workshops will be held in instructional spaces on the ground floor (floor 2) and lower level (floor 1) in rooms: 1265, 1255, 2255, 2245, 2185. Please consult the detailed workshop schedule to identify your room. We’ll have signage at the main entrance to help guide you and there is an elevator on the left after you enter the building.

Bentley Historical Library

The Bentley Historical Library is located on North Campus and accessible via multiple U-M Campus Blue Bus routes. See public transportation and parking for details.

The front entrance is wheelchair accessible and equipped with an automatic door opener, as is the entrance from the lobby into the public area. A gender-inclusive and wheelchair accessible restroom is available.

Reception Details

When: Tuesday, May 14, 2024 from 6:30-9pm. Fowling starts at 7.

Transportation: We’ll provide shuttles to and from the reception. The first shuttles will leave from the Michigan League at 6:30pm and continue round trips.

All attendees are invited to join us for a complimentary reception Tuesday evening at the Fowling Warehouse. What is Fowling? Fowling is The Original Football Bowling Pin Game. It started as a one-lane mashup of football and bowling while tailgating at the 2001 Indy 500. It’s as easy as throwing a football at ten bowling pins until someone knocks them all down.

Don't forget your conference name tag and lanyard!
