Join us in Boston for the Charleston Conference Library Acquisitions Boot
Camp at SSP!
Wednesday, May 27, 2020
8:30 am – 3:30 pm
Westin Waterfront, Boston MA
This pre-meeting training session, a popular feature of the annual
Charleston Conference, is now open to attendees of the 2020 SSP Annual
The training session will offer a high-level overview of the workflows and
concepts of the acquisitions process from the librarian’s point of view,
from how libraries select materials to how they recommend interacting with
vendors, and how they articulate the return on investment to their parent
organizations (academic/special/public libraries). Attendees will gain
valuable insight into the strategies and best practices librarians use to
manage a variety of material types, such as print materials, e-books, and
other e-resources. The group will also discuss how emerging issues, like
Plan S for open access science publishing and transformative agreements,
are affecting libraries’ acquisitions plans.
This class is ideally suited for librarians new to selection and
acquisitions workflows as well as publishing professionals who want to
learn more about current acquisition practices in libraries and the impact
of open access on both communities.
