ASERL Friends: In its meeting yesterday, the ASERL Board of Directors signed on to the Code4Lib Community Statement in Support of Chris Bourg, Director of Libraries at Massachusetts Institute of Technology who has experienced harassment following a recent presentation she led examining why people from marginalized groups voluntarily leave jobs in the tech world. See https://code4lib.github.io/c4l18-keynote-statement/. ASERL members stand shoulder-to-shoulder in defending our MIT colleague from mistreatment. In the same meeting, the ASERL Board approved a Code of Conduct for all persons participating in ASERL events, in-person or online, effective immediately. See http://www.aserl.org/aserl_code_of_conduct/. While we have no evidence such behavior has occurred in connection with our events, ASERL leaders seek to ensure it never happens. ASERL's policy was adapted from the Digital Library Federation's Code of Conduct (https://www.diglib.org/about/code-of-conduct/); we thank DLF for their inspiration. Please let me know any questions. Thank you. --jeb John Burger, Executive Director Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL) c/o Robert W. Woodruff Library 540 Asbury Circle, Suite 316 Atlanta, GA 30322 404-727-0137
