Charleston Library Conference 

Jan 8, 2018

Hi, this is Leah Hinds. Welcome to episode 43 of ATG: The Podcast

The 2017 Charleston Fast Pitch Competition asked for applications from libraries across the country to present their new, innovative, and implementable ideas to improve their academic libraries or related organizations. Modeled on venture capital funding competitions, the Charleston Fast Pitch Competition provides two monetary awards of $2,500 to further support the development and implementation of compelling library innovations. Finalists presented their projects to a panel of experts and the 2017 Charleston Conference attendees. Although only four finalists were invited to present at the conference, we had a group of honorable mentions with wonderful ideas and innovative projects that we wanted to highlight as well, so we’re bringing those to our listeners as podcast episodes. 

Today we’re happy to be joined by Monica Rysavy and Russell Michalak, applicants from Goldey-Beacom College
