Overview

The Charleston Conference Proceedings 2005, documents what is arguably the most influential and highly thought of conferences in the U.S. library world. Always well attended and managed, the Conference attracts the leading figures of both the library world and the businesses that service libraries, including publishers—both paper and electronic—jobbers and aggregators. Its focus is collection management, but the topic is misleading now that traditional collection management has been expanded to include electronic publications of all sorts. Each year the speakers and topics are outstanding and 2005 was no exception. Indeed, the Conference seems to get better each year.

The Charleston Conference is arguably one of the most influential and highly regarded conferences in the U.S. library world. Always well attended and managed, the conference attracts the leading figures from libraries and the businesses that service them, including publishers, jobbers and aggregators.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The 32 essays and discussions of this proceedings were presented at the 25th Charleston Conference, held in Charleston, South Carolina in November, 2005. The essays offer first-hand reports on new types of electronic library services, including those used in collection development, journal account management, product development, and online resources. Other topics include library consortia, ordering from Amazon, and actively engaging with the local community to improve library image and function." - Reference & Research Book News

"[M]ost of the presentations provide useful, though provoking ideas and information, and illustrate how creative the library world really is. Recommended to anyone connected to these issues as offered by innovators, who are blazing the trails for future library collection development and management." - Collection Management
