The Charleston Conference directors and staff would like to congratulate Becca Brody, Digital Resources and Collection Development Librarian at Ely Library, Westfield State University, on winning a free registration to the 2015 Charleston Conference!  Becca was chosen from a drawing of 2014 attendee evaluation participants.

“Thank you to the organizers and directors of the Charleston Conference for this opportunity,” said Becca Brody. “I attended the conference for the first time this year, presenting a poster and taking advantage of the preconferences, and I’m very excited to be able to attend again this fall. I returned to my library with many new project ideas, and I look forward to seeing what’s in store for next year’s conference!”

2015 will mark the 35th year of the annual conference on issues in book and serial acquisition. Although the topics have changed over the years, the goal of an informal atmosphere for open discussion and conversation among librarians, publishers, and vendors has not.  With a focus on collection development and acquisitions, attendance has traditionally varied from paraprofessional staff to library directors; from admin staff to CEO’s; from the “little dogs” to the “big dogs.”

“Congratulations to Becca on winning a free registration for 2015!  I look forward to seeing her, and the rest of the attendees, next November for another jam-packed, informative, invigorating conference. Thanks to all who participate and present for making the event a success each year,” said Katina Strauch, Conference Founder and Associate Dean of Technical Services at the College of Charleston.
