Charleston in-between – Moving right along, hope you all were able to watch Charleston in between on peer review. The awesomely connected Cris Ferguson (Murray State Library Director) was the moderator of this Charleston in-between! Don Hawkins’ excellent report will be posted online very soon at the Charleston hub. Keep an eye out for this!
Vendor Showcase sold out! OH! Returning to the actual Charleston Conference, the very last vendor showcase booth was just sold! It’s definitely hard to keep up with the hard-charging Toni!
