Charleston Insights in Library, Archival, and Information Sciences

The Charleston Library Conference and its related venues for discourse provide a unique forum for discussion of issues of mutual interest across traditional divides between librarians, publishers, and vendors. Discussion is often 'ahead of the curve,' anticipating as well as reflecting the most important trends. The Series will focus on important topics in library, archival, and information science, presenting the issues in a relatively jargon­ free way that is accessible to all types of information professionals. Most volumes will be edited collections. A typical volume will present an overview of issues by an expert volume editor and then thematic chapters. Reflecting the pragmatic tone of the series, chapters will often include case studies that describe lessons learned and suggest best practice.

Series Editors: Katina Strauch and Tom Gilson of the College of Charleston.
