NASIG Annual Conference, Phoenix
7 June 2008
Dealing with vendors is a reality for librarians, especially in today's electronic environment of growing complexity and content fragmentation. Yet this is a facet that is often not addressed in library school, requiring librarians to learn the "ins and outs" and "do's and don'ts" of managing these relationships on-the-job. Our librarian and vendor panelists will offer personal insights and experiences, as well as discuss essential aspects and best practices for working with vendors to help insure that librarians get the most value from these relationships.
