2013 Charleston Conference logo

 

The 33rd Annual Charleston Conference is being held Wednesday, November 6 through Saturday, November 9, 2013 in historic Charleston, South Carolina.

The informal and friendly atmosphere of the conference continues to be an essential event for ProQuest subject matter experts to mingle and have conversations with librarians and publishers about issues that are important to all of them. While the tone is casual, the discussions are centered on answering significant questions that plague the information industry.

 

“Too Much is Not Enough” is the Charleston Conference theme this year, and keeping with the theme, ProQuest is offering several opportunities to hear our experts speak about hot topics (such as finding reliable content among open access, and the self-publishing phenomenon). ProQuest subject matter experts are also participating on panels with librarians who will be sharing their experiences with our services.

With sessions ranging from Pre-Conference Workshops, Juried Product Development Forums, Breakout Sessions, Lively Lunches, Premiers, and an Innovative Session, if the various speaking sessions just are not enough, attendees can learn about all of the latest innovations from ProQuest at the Vendor Showcase. With so many new and exciting products and ideas to share, we expect our program at this year’s Charleston Conference to be our best yet!
