The Charleston Conference continues to be a major event for information and idea exchange among librarians, vendors, and publishers. 2020 was a year for the history books in every way, with a global pandemic shutting down the world for most of the year. Events pivoted from in-person to virtual in record-breaking times and the Charleston Conference was no exception. The Conference saw a surge in attendance with an almost 150% increase from 2019, and Conference attendees continued to remark on the informative and thought‐ provoking sessions in a virtual environment.
This is the sixteenth year that Beth R. Bernhardt, Consortia Account Manager at Oxford University Press, has put together the proceedings from the Conference. It’s the twelfth year for Leah Hinds, Executive Director, and the fourth year that we are joined by Lars Meyer, Director, Access & Resource Services, Library & Information Technology Services at Emory University. We are pleased to share some of the learning experiences that we, and other attendees, had at the conference.
