Conferences

RBMS held its first preconference (now conference) in 1959, and since 1961 has held an annual conference in conjunction with the ALA annual conference. In September 2014, the RBMS Preconference was renamed the RBMS Conference. The Conference Development Committee proposed this name change in recognition of the substantive difference between the half-day or day-long preconferences offered by other groups at the ALA Annual Meeting and the two-and-a-half full days of programs offered by RBMS, complemented by tours, workshops, receptions, the booksellers showcase, and other opportunities.

Proceedings of several RBMS Preconferences have been published; please see the “Publications” section of the Web site for details.
