If you are interested in attending a professional library conference at a very low cost, please contact Audrey Powers, at the USF Tampa Library. The Charleston Conference: Issues in Book and Serial Acquisitions 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”.
As a student you will get a conference rate of $40.00 (normally $390.00) and in exchange you are enlisted to assist with the conference, such as to write reviews of conference sessions. Also, you have the opportunity to share a house at Folly Beach with Library Science students from University of South Carolina.
You are responsible for your own transportation and food.
