Friends… With Benefits: Assessing Publisher/Vendor/Library Relationships

Good relationships between publishers, vendors, and librarians are essential for providing good service and good products to library users. But as in any relationship, things can get… complicated.

This year, PVLR takes a look at the good, the bad, and the tangled, and what all parties can do to help keep our relationships on an even keel, with perspectives from Wendy Allen Shelburne, Electronic Resources Librarian, University of Illinois, Regan Harper, Director, Member Programs, LYRASIS, and Lenny Allen, Director, Institutional Accounts, Oxford University Press.

Please join us at 8:30 AM on Monday, July1, MCP room N-231.

And a reminder, the PVLR business meeting will be Saturday, June 29 4:30-5:30 PM in HRM Boardroom 2.

We hope to see you at PVLR on the First!
