Charleston NeapolitanThis year, the Charleston Conference Planning Committee has decided to open a new type of plenary session to be scheduled on Friday, November 8.

Traditionally, we have a main ballroom for plenary speakers with a live video feed to overflow seating in two additional ballrooms located nearby. This year we thought we would try a new and different approach. We will have three different plenary sessions in each of the three large ballrooms running simultaneously. We are calling it “Charleston Neapolitan.”  As you probably already know, we like new things and we’re excited to share this new format with you!

Here’s the lineup:

10:30 – 11:15 am

Don’t Be An Invisible Library!

Open Access, Public Access: Policies, implementation, developments, and the future of US published research.
