What is a Library of Social Science Book Exhibit?

Our exhibits are not simply “displays.” For each conference, we bring together a comprehensive collection of recent and significant titles on the meeting’s topics and themes—from the most prominent publishers in the world. Our exhibits contribute substantially to the success and intellectual value of the meeting—becoming a gathering place where attendees meet and mingle. Our conferences book exhibits are a sight to behold. Conference attendees are not only impressed, but often stunned by the quality and scope of our exhibit. The photos below convey the excitement that an LSS book exhibit brings to a meeting.

Dear Colleague,

Library of Social Science is nearing the end of our 2015 book exhibits. We’ll be in Washington, DC this weekend—and will close out the year in San Antonio in mid-November. Our exhibits have created excitement among conference-goers, showcasing the breadth and depth of research in their given field.

People say a picture is worth a thousand words. I’m a writer, so I don’t know about this (or prefer to believe it isn’t true). But I have to admit that the experience of a Library of Social Science Book Exhibit is best captured in photographs. When one of our onsite managers returns from an exhibit with photos, I’m astonished. Did we create that?

To give you feeling for an LSS Book Exhibit, our Creative Director, Orion Anderson, has selected a potpourri of scenes from our 2015 conferences. I’m impressed—not only with the size of our exhibits and the scope of the titles—but with the beauty of our displays, which obviously enhance and enrich the conference experience for attendees.

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN THE PAGE & CHECK OUT THE BEAUTIFUL PHOTOGRAPHS. The only thing missing is the coffee.

With regards,
Richard Koenigsberg, PhD
Director, Library of Social Science

Dear Colleague,

Library of Social Science has perfected a paradigm creating, organizing, and managing book exhibits at scholarly and professional conferences—broadening the market for books and journals through comprehensive displays of outstanding titles focused on a conference theme.
At some conferences, exhibits are an afterthought. Library of Social Science book exhibits are located at the heart of the action, becoming a central dimension of the meeting experience—and a gathering place for attendees.

Invariably impressed by the breadth and depth of our collection on their topic, conferees come back to browse again and again, frequently discovering titles of which they had been unaware. “This book is perfect for a course I’m teaching.” Our onsite exhibit managers overhear conversations among colleagues: “You’d better read this book. It’s really important for your research.”

Publishers from around the world depend upon our warm, welcoming book exhibits to present their new and significant titles to their target market.

In two previous Library of Social Science Newsletters we conveyed the experience and purpose of an LSS Book Exhibit: our displays become the center of a conference—putting new and significant books in front of the eyes of their target market; becoming indispensable tools for promoting your titles.

At a recent LSS Book Exhibit, we promoted several titles recently published by Oxford University Press. We purchased multiple copies and set up author signings.

The experience was so positive and successful that we’ve decided to make selling author titles—and author signings—a permanent part of our exhibit template.

This was not the first time we had featured and sold specific author titles at our exhibits. PLEASE SCROSS DOWN THE PAGE TO SEE AUTHORS PHOTOGRAPHED WITH THEIR BOOKS.
