The Charleston Conference is pleased to announce that our 2012 Proceedings are now available online for free through the support of Purdue University Press, a unit of Purdue University Libraries.
Almost one hundred presentations from the 32nd annual Charleston Library Conference (held November 7-10, 2012) are included in this annual proceedings volume. Major themes of the meeting included alternative metrics for measuring impact, patron-driven acquisition, Open Access monographs, the future of university presses, and techniques for minimizing duplication and emphasizing the unique in library collections.
The print edition will be available in October 2013, and is available now for pre-order. List price is $65, but a 10% discount is available by ordering online through Purdue University Press.
