The 2010 Charleston Conference would like to announce that we’ve extended the application deadline for our Juried Product Development Forums to Monday, August 30.

The Forums are focus groups designed for publishers and vendors to gather market input from librarians on the development of a particular product or service, and for librarians to discuss market issues with publishers and vendors invited to participate in a forum.

Publishers and vendors have a unique opportunity for feedback from librarians regarding the design, features, feasibility or pricing of a particular product or service that addresses internal debates and shortens the sales cycle.

The application and more information is available on the Conference website. Please contact Leah Hinds at or 864-353-1181 or Sharna Williams at or 843-953-8008 with questions.
