The Charleston Conference Reception

by | Nov 7, 2014 | 1 comment

The traditional conference reception is eagerly anticipated by attendees, and this year’s event was no exception.  It was held at the South Carolina Aquarium (the same venue as last year’s reception), and featured a variety of local dishes, entertainment, and of course, the wonderful aquatic exhibits.  A new feature this year was a book signing of Reinventing Reference in the 21st Century, edited by David Tyckoson, Associate Dean of Library Services, University of California, Fresno, and John Dove, former CEO of Credo Reference, and published by Purdue University Press.
