Submit your proposals for the 2022 Charleston Library Conference!
October 31 – November 4
“Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”
The 2022 Charleston Library Conference will be a hybrid event. We strongly encourage in-person attendance for presenters, but will offer a chance for virtual speakers to participate via a pre-recorded presentation and live Q&A. For panel presentations, the majority of presenters must attend in person.
Conference registration and hotel guest room blocks will open in June, as well as Vendor Showcase exhibitor registration. We will offer both individual and group registrations with a “mix and match” option for both in-person and virtual attendance. Rates, deadlines, and more details will be announced soon.
Do you have ideas, challenges, solutions, or information to share?
We’re seeking proposals on topics related to collection development and acquisitions, including, but not limited to, the following threads:
- Analysis and Analytics
- Collections/Collection Development
- Library Services
- Scholarly Communication
- Technology & Trends
- Up & Coming – For those new to the profession.
Proposal deadline is Monday, July 11. See our Call for Papers Guidelines for information on how to craft a successful proposal.
PLEASE NOTE: Conference sessions are meant for librarians, publishers, and vendors to discuss issues of interest to them all. They are not an opportunity for marketing products or services. All proposals must include at least one librarian or library worker at the time of submission. Conference sessions should include a diverse representation from the different viewpoints and stakeholders in the scholarly communications process.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
