The 2016 Call for Preconferences and Seminars is now open, with a proposal submission deadline on April 29.
These in-depth learning sessions range from a half day to two days in length, and will be held from Monday, October 31, through Wednesday, November 2. We are seeking proposals for hands-on, practical workshops that will offer a deeper, more thorough look at topics related to collection development and acquisitions. We are also open to proposals for post-conference sessions to be held on Saturday afternoon, November 5.

About the Conference: The Charleston Conference is an informal annual gathering of librarians, publishers, electronic resource managers, consultants, and vendors of library materials in Charleston, SC, in November, to discuss issues of importance to them all. It is designed to be a collegial gathering of individuals from different areas who discuss the same issues in a non-threatening, friendly, and highly informal environment. Presidents of companies discuss and debate with library directors, acquisitions librarians, reference librarians, serials librarians, collection development librarians, and many, many others. Begun in 1980, the Charleston Conference has grown from 20 participants in 1980 to over 1,700 in 2015.
