*2015 Charleston Seminars: Registration Now Open*The Charleston Conference
is excited to offer three Charleston Seminars for 2015. These workshops
will be held prior to the main conference on Monday, November 2, and Tuesday,
November 3. See below for descriptions and registration information:

*1. Acquisitions Bootcamp*
Presented in conjunction with UNC Chapel Hill School of Library and
Information Science.

Monday, November 2, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm,
and Tuesday, November 3, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Speakers: Rebecca Vargha and Megan Kilb, UNC Chapel Hill

This seminar will offer an intensive one and one-half day boot camp on
acquisitions from three different perspectives: public services, technical
services, and the vendor side. The major emphasis is on the nuts and bolts
of the acquisitions process from selecting materials, especially e-books,
to assessing collections and articulating the return on investment to the
parent organization (academic/special/public libraries). Using an
interactive hands-on approach, with case studies, small group discussion,
and best practices attendees will gain pragmatic knowledge they can apply
in their home institutions. This class is ideally suited for librarians new
to selection and acquisitions workflows.

Registration Cost: $225

*2. Legal Issues in Libraries: Beyond Bright Lines  (or, Things librarians
didn't know they need to know about the law, but they really do!)*

Presented in conjunction with UNC Chapel Hill School of Library and
Information Science.

Tuesday, November 3, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Speakers: William Cross, North Carolina State University;
Kevin Smith, Duke University; Moderated by Ann Okerson, CRL

Librarians are faced with legal issues every day but, without knowing what
to look, for it can be easy to miss or misunderstand them. Conventional
wisdom that offers easy answers can be tempting but may provide a false
sense of security. Even worse, by trying to follow rules we don't really
understand, we may unnecessarily impede the library's ability to do good
work. Through a series of discussions and group activities, this day-long
session, will prepare librarians to make informed, thoughtful decisions in
key legal areas that are becoming ever more crucial in institutional

The session will conclude with a summary of issues that will need further
follow-up with professionals, and discussion of how that might follow-up
may be better achieved.
