The Charleston Library Conference is pleased to announce that registration is now open for our 2015 event. This annual conference on issues in book and serial acquisition will again be held in beautiful historic downtown Charleston, SC, with headquarters at the Francis Marion Hotel. Sessions will also be held at the Courtyard by Marriott Historic, the Embassy Suites Historic, and, for the first time, at the Gaillard Center Charleston. The brand new Gaillard Center, located in downtown Charleston on Calhoun Street, has state-of-the-art performance hall and meeting rooms, and we’re excited to be one of the first groups to use the beautiful new space.
The Charleston Conference also has a new web address! We are moving from katina.info/conference to charlestonlibraryconference.com. All of the old links and email addresses will re-direct to the new domain. We hope that the new site will be easier to navigate and that you will all find the information you need about the event.
“The Charleston Conference allows us to network, to talk as well as listen to each other,” says Conference Founder and Convener Katina Strauch, “and to share new approaches and ideas. We can all succeed at the intersection of our various thoughts and responsibilities. Come on down!”
Confirmed plenary speakers include Katherine Skinner (Educopia Institute); Courtney Young (Pennsylvania State University and 2014-2015 ALA President); The Long Arm of the Law panel, including Ann Okerson (CRL), Bill Hannay (Schiff Hardin LLP), Lisa Macklin (Emory University), and Gary Price (InfoDocket); Jim O’Donnell (Arizona State University); Derek Law (University of Strathclyde); and Clark Morrell (Rittenhouse). Other speakers will be announced soon. We also have a fantastic line up of preconference sessions scheduled for Wednesday, November 4.
