Book Title: Conferences and Their Literature: A Question of Value

Author: Robert Oseman

Book Description:

Conferences provide opportunities for professional development and training, to gather with colleagues, to explore ways to enhance and improve services. Institutions commit sizeable budgets to support employee attendance. Professional associations depend on the revenue generated. Yet, in spite of their value and significance, very little has been written about conferences. I selected this book because it was the only work devoted specifically to the study of library conferences and was important to my own research.
