The Charleston Library Conference, one of the most important events for academic libraries and publishers, today (October 16) brought a two-hour program to this year’s digital Frankfurter Buchmesse which included librarians, publishers and academic professionals.

Called “Charleston Library Conference Meets Frankfurter Buchmesse,” this digital program marks the start of a closer working relationship between the two big events.

According to Thomas Minkus, vice-president of the Frankfurter Buchmesse, Frankfurt and the Charleston Library Conference this year agreed to cooperate on programming and cross-promotion in order to bring more value to attendees to both events.

In the first half of Charleston’s program in Frankfurt, two major themes emerged from the speakers:

    Academic libraries are making big changes in their collection development strategies
    More work is needed to find sustainable business models for the entire spectrum of academic publishing
