2013 Charleston Conference: Issues in Book and Serial Acquisition
“Too Much Is Not Enough!”
November 6 – 9
Historic Downtown Charleston, South Carolina
We are seeking proposals for concurrent sessions, Lively Lunch discussions, poster sessions, and 6 minute, 40 second “shotgun” sessions on topics related to acquisitions and collection development. Details on each presentation type are available on the proposal form. Please contact Leah Hinds or any of the Conference Directors with questions or comments.
Online registration for the Conference will open on Monday, June 2, and the Early Bird discounted rate will be available through August 16, 2013.
NEW for 2013:
Due to requests from the attendee evaluations and comments that were given in person, we are making some scheduling and formatting changes for 2013.
Updated for 2013! Poster Sessions and Conference Happy Hour:
The 2013 Poster Sessions will have a brand new time slot and venue that eliminates conflicts with other conference presentations. They will be scheduled immediately following the afternoon plenary session on Thursday and Friday in the Café Bistro of the Courtyard Marriott. But best of all, the Poster Sessions will run while the Conference Happy Hour is in full swing in the adjacent Outdoor Courtyard area. Conference attendees will be able to mix and mingle in a relaxed setting while being afforded the opportunity to learn about the latest innovative projects at libraries throughout the county. There will be no concurrent sessions held during this time slot, allowing attendees to focus on the ideas presented in the posters and network at Happy Hour.
Changes coming soon! Saturday Morning Tech Talks:
We are in the process of re-structuring the Saturday morning Fast Tech Talks to better provide a wide breadth of content on new and updated products that are of interest to the Charleston Conference community. Look for more information to come soon, including a name change that more accurately reflects the change in focus. We’re excited about this new format and look forward to sharing it with you.
Be sure to include plans to stay for Saturday in your travel itinerary – you won’t want to miss it!
