ProQuest subject matter experts and valued customers will be discussing hot topics at one of the longest running conferences in the information industry, the annual Charleston Conference.
Designed to gather a diverse group in order to talk about issues that are important to the information industry, the conference is being held Wednesday, November 5 through Saturday, November 8, 2014 in historic Charleston, South Carolina. The friendly atmosphere of the conference makes it an essential event for ProQuest to have conversations with librarians and faculty.
Partnered with our customers and industry partners, ProQuest is hosting a number of sessions to enlighten attendees about our library workflow and research tools, unique resources, and essential ebook content that continue to support researchers and libraries.
Here’s a preview of what you can expect to learn from ProQuest during the conference:
