ATG Newsflash: New and Improved Charleston Conference Session Threads

by | Jun 30, 2017 | 0 comments

The 2017 Charleston Conference Call for Papers, Ideas, Panels, Debates, Diatribes, Speakers, Poster Sessions, etc. is still open through Friday, July 14.

In an effort to consolidate and make things simpler, we have re-organized our session topical threads into the following groups:

AN: Analytics
CD: Collections
LS: Library Services
MT: Management
SC: Scholarly Communication
TE: Technology
UC: Up & Coming


This year, we are also thrilled to announce a new topic thread: Up & Coming (UC). The UC thread is intended for attendees who are…

– New to the profession of library and information studies, including librarians, library staff, vendors, publishers, content providers, consultants, and researchers.
– New to the Charleston Conference.
– New to the specific areas of focus of the Charleston Conference (collection development, acquisitions, instruction, scholarly communication, technical services, vendor/publisher relations).
– MLIS students and recent graduates.
– Those with no or limited prior experience presenting at professional conferences.

The UC thread is a terrific opportunity for up & comers to:

– Become actively involved in the Charleston Conference.
– Make a stronger case to attend the Charleston Conference.
– Share your unique experience and knowhow in a supportive, reputable professional sphere.
– Hone your presentation skills.

Do you have ideas, challenges, solutions, or information to share? We encourage proposals that combine UC with other topic threads for lively lunch discussions, concurrent sessions, innovation sessions, and poster sessions.

The Call for Papers proposal form is available at
