Room rates for the hotel will be: single, double, or triple: $129.00 plus taxes; quad: $149 plus taxes. These rates will be offered for 3 days prior to and 3 days after the meeting dates based on availability so take a few days to plan a vacation in Nashville! (Note: we regret that hotel rooms are sold out on June 4th).
We encourage you to make your plans early. This is a very busy time for Nashville. The Country Music Festival will be selling tickets for concerts with many big name country music performers. Bonnaroo, a music and arts festival south of Nashville, will be offering many activities and performances. There will lots to choose from during this week in Nashville. Please see the official visitors and tourism site for more information. If you are within driving distance, having a car will give you additional options to go out and about. If you plan to fly, book your flights early!
Next year’s conference will be held June 6-9, 2013 in Buffalo, NY.

The Association of Research Libraries, the University of Virginia Library, and the University of Washington Libraries are pleased to announce the 2012 Library Assessment Conference: Building Effective, Sustainable, Practical Assessment, to be held in Charlottesville, Virginia from October 29-31, 2012. The conference goal is to build and further a vibrant library assessment community by bringing together interested practitioners and researchers who have responsibility or interest in the broad field of library assessment. The conference provides a mix of invited speakers, contributed papers and posters, and workshops that stimulate discussion and provide workable ideas for effective, practical and sustainable library assessment. This biennial conference builds on the success of the first three conferences held in Charlottesville (2006), Seattle (2008), and Baltimore (2010).

Each year hundreds of librarians, vendors, and publishers make a pilgrimage to the Holy City. They are not headed to the Mediterranean, but to the southeast coast of the U S — to Charleston, SC.
The Charleston Conference is an informal annual gathering of librarians, publishers, electronic resource managers, consultants, and vendors of library materials in Charleston, SC, in November, to discuss issues of importance to them all. It is designed to be a collegial gathering of individuals from different areas who discuss the same issues in a non-threatening, friendly, and highly informal environment. Presidents of companies discuss and debate with library directors, acquisitions librarians, reference librarians, serials librarians, collection development librarians, and many, many others. Begun in 1980, the Charleston Conference has grown from 20 participants in 1980 to over 1,400 in 2011. Due to the amount of growth we have experienced, the Conference was held in two hotels for the first time in 2005: the Francis Marion and the Embassy Suites, both in downtown Charleston. We are now in three hotels (the Francis Marion, the Embassy Suites Historic, and the Courtyard Marriott Historic) plus the College of Charleston Addlestone Library for our concurrent sessions!
The Conference does not have exhibits and is not attached to any professional organization, although a separately managed Vendor Showcase and Juried Product Development Forums take place at the Conference (for more information, click here).
