Payment is required before the date of the conference. We accept MasterCard, Visa, American Express and checks. Credit card payments might be subject to a convenience fee. The Reference Shelf pre-pays for conferences, set-up fees, shipping, travel, hotel and all other expenses associated with attending conferences. Sending payment for the conference with your materials is the best way to avoid the $20.00 per title late fee. 

Refunds and Cancellations

Cancellations must be received in writing 10 days before the start date of the conference booked. Due to our shipping schedules to the various conferences no refunds will be made after this date.
