In an effort to consolidate and make things simpler, we have re-organized our session topical threads into the following groups:
  • AN: Analytics
  • CD: Collections
  • LS: Library Services
  • MT: Management
  • SC: Scholarly Communication
  • TE: Technology
  • UC: Up & Coming
This year, we are also thrilled to announce a new topic thread: Up & Coming (UC). The UC thread is intended for attendees who are…
  • New to the profession of library and information studies, including librarians, library staff, vendors, publishers, content providers, consultants, and researchers.
  • New to the Charleston Conference.
  • New to the specific areas of focus of the Charleston Conference (collection development, acquisitions, instruction, scholarly communication, technical services, vendor/publisher relations).
  • MLIS students and recent graduates.
  • Those with no or limited prior experience presenting at professional conferences.
The UC thread is a terrific opportunity for up & comers to:
  • Become actively involved in the Charleston Conference.
  • Make a stronger case to attend the Charleston Conference.
  • Share your unique experience and knowhow in a supportive, reputable professional sphere.
  • Hone your presentation skills.

Do you have ideas, challenges, solutions, or information to share? We encourage proposals that combine UC with other topic threads for lively lunch discussions, concurrent sessions, innovation sessions, and poster sessions.
