The Charleston Conference is an informal annual gathering of librarians, publishers, electronic resource managers, consultants, and vendors of library materials in Charleston, SC, in November, to discuss issues of importance to them all. It is designed to be a collegial gathering of individuals from different areas who discuss the same issues in a non-threatening, friendly, and highly informal environment. Presidents of companies discuss and debate with library directors, acquisitions librarians, reference librarians, serials librarians, collection development librarians, and many, many others. Begun in 1980, the Charleston Conference has grown from 20 participants in 1980 to over 1,600 in 2013.

The Conference does not have exhibits and is not attached to any professional organization, although a separately managed Vendor Showcase and Juried Product Development Forums take place at the Conference.

Who should attend?

Anyone in the information industry!  Although our focus is on collection development and acquisitions, our attendance has traditionally varied from paraprofessional staff to library directors; from admin staff to CEO’s; from the "little dogs" to the "big dogs." And that’s the way we like it! 


Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with over 1,600 collection development, acquisitions, and electronic resources professionals from around the country and internationally. This year’s 34th Annual Charleston Conference features an exciting list of speakers and, for the 15th year, back by popular demand, the Charleston Vendor Showcase - your chance to show your latest electronic products and services to a target audience of library buyers.
