*About the Conference:*

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 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 almost 2,000 in 2016.
