We’re looking forward to our Annual Conference Reception on Thursday, November 3, from 7:00 – 9:00 pm. Please help us extend a huge thank you to Gale, a Cengage Company, for sponsoring the event!


Charleston is well known for its hospitality, and the Annual Reception is a true Charleston affair! The reception will be held at the South Carolina Aquarium. Be entertained by an intimate look at many of South Carolina’s native animals and plants as your journey through the Aquarium takes you from the mountains to the sea. You’ll encounter surprises around every corner and an experience straight from the island of Madagascar is closer than you imagine. The Shark Shallows 20,000 gallon touch tank exhibit will also be open to attendees.


We are excited to host a book signing event for authors of several new books published in the Charleston Insights in Library, Archival, and Information Sciences series. Authors and books to be announced soon. Delicious lowcountry specialties as well as more familiar reception fare will be served. Beer, wine, and soft drinks provided at the bar. Food stations will be located throughout the exhibits on both levels of the aquarium. There will be two bars: one located on the main floor near the Madagascar exhibit, and one outside on the terrace.

Shuttle transportation will be provided. Pick up one of the shuttles at any conference location and let the driver know you wish to attend the reception at the aquarium. Be sure to wear your conference name badge for admission. We can’t wait to see you there!
