The Charleston Library Conference has been invited to present a session this year during the Frankfurter Buchmesse – Special Edition 2020. The event will be on Friday, October 16 and will be on the Frankfurter Book Fair virtual platform. There is no registration to attend the Fair. For people to view the event, they will need to have a My Book Fair login. (This is completely free and you can register here.). Anyone who has visited the fair before should already have a login.
People don’t need to pre-register for any of the events – just log into My Book Fair. Information about the Charleston Library Event can be found here .
We have a fantastic line-up of presenters, including a wide variety of institution sizes and types, both US and international. Panel discussion topics include the state of the academic library, the future of the monograph, values-based collection development, developing and implementing a marketing program, and artificial intelligence, copyright, and privacy. You can find more details here.
Meanwhile, the Charleston Conference is moving along very well on the Pathable Platform which uses Zoom. We already have vendor showcase exhibitors and over 1000 paid registrations! Leah Hinds is to be commended hugely for ALL of the work that she has put into getting the Frankfurt and Charleston Conference virtual meetings together! Hip Hip Hooray for Leah! The Charleston Conference program is available here.
