Preconferences are workshops and seminars that range from a half day to a full day in length, and will be held on the Monday and Tuesday prior to the start of the main conference. These sessions require an additional registration and fee, and are included on the main conference registration form. Full Day sessions are $225, and Half Day sessions are $150. These are intended to be in-depth learning sessions that will offer a deeper, more thorough look at topics related to collection development and acquisitions. Preconferences are held on Monday and Tuesday of the conference week.
