The banner for this year’s Charleston Library Conference schedule features an illustration of Lewis Carroll’s poem “The Walrus and the Carpenter” with the quote “The time has come to talk of many things” — and indeed, for ITHAKA it has. Representatives of JSTOR, Portico, and Ithaka S+R are taking part in approximately a dozen presentations and panels on collections, innovations, ethics, and more; a full list is below. We also invite you to visit us at table 56 on Tuesday, November 5, to learn about our new contributed collections program!
