*This post is shared on behalf of one of our professional development award winner, Marie Ascher.*
Thanks to a UNYOC professional development award, librarians at New York Medical College attended the virtual Charleston Conference in November 2021. Most were first-time attendees. The Charleston Conference is an annual gathering of librarians, publishers, electronic resource managers, consultants, and vendors of library materials. We thought it was an outstanding conference and a good opportunity for professional development. Originally Marie Ascher received the award but due to travel restrictions she opted to open virtual attendance to multiple colleagues.
This is what the NYMC librarians had to say:
The Charleston Conference provided a deep dive into current issues in electronic resource management and collection development. This helped me feel more confident when facing tasks at work that are new to me. The conference was an ideal opportunity to engage with librarians across disciplines about the common challenges to our profession. In this way we discover solutions and find a sense of community and connection.
If you are interested in attending this conference, the registration and call for papers for 2022 are now open. For more information, see https://www.charleston-hub.com/the-charleston-conference/ Maybe we’ll see you there!
