In what has become an annual tradition, Elsevier is pleased to offer the Library Connect Charleston Conference Award for first-time presenters. The 2014 award provides up to US $1,500 to be used for registration costs, economy class airfare and hotel expenses to attend the 34th Annual Charleston Conference: Issues in Book and Serial Acquisition, November 5-8, 2014.
Last year’s winner Sherri Michaels remarked, “I am delighted to share my experience with collocating collections for a shared print repository in my session, but I am most looking forward to participating in many interesting conversations and learning from my library colleagues throughout the conference.” The Head of Collection Management at Indiana University Bloomington, Sherri gave a presentation on “Shared Print on the Move: Collocating Collections” at last year’s Charleston Conference.
If you are or know of a first-time presenter at the 34th Annual Charleston Conference, please apply for the award or share this announcement with your library colleagues and peers. Applications are due by September 2, 2014, and will undergo a blind judging by a panel that includes Keith Cogdill, Director, NIH Library; John McDonald, Associate Dean for Collections, USC Libraries; and Kira Cooper, Global Customer Engagement Director, Elsevier.
