Library of Social Science’s 2016 Promotional Package

Most publishers now work with us through our Promotional Package, which allows you to exhibit at each and every one of our 2016 book exhibits at a single fee.

Exhibiting through the PP provides extraordinary savings as compared with signing up on a conference by conference basis.

Please contact Richard Koenigsberg at rak@Libraryof
for details.
Library of Social Science creates book exhibits of unsurpassed quality. Our displays perform a research function for scholars and educators—presenting comprehensive collections of the most significant titles—the latest developments—in a field.

Becoming an integral part of each conference, attendees return to the LSS exhibit again and again to check out titles they may have missed the first time around.

Our 2016 conference “list” is the best ever. In addition to highly focused meetings that define a given discipline—we are organizing book exhibits at several large meetings with 2000-3000 attendees (equivalent in size to many national conferences).

You don’t have to be there yourself! Library of Social Science will handle your display and promote your books.

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

PS: Our exhibits are not traditional “booths.” Rather, they consist of multiple tables—typically ten or more tables at each meeting. All books are displayed face-out. We often feature publishers who have their own full table display (25-30 titles, with banner).
