CT10: Negotiating Successfully with Vendors12:00 p.m. - 12:15 p.m.
According to Outsell, the Information Industry generates over $700B in revenue to the vendors servicing the library community. Academic Libraries spend $7 billion per year. $4 billion of this on acquisition of products & technology to serve users. Libraries deal with hundreds, even thousands of unique vendors every year. And budgets are generally flat or constricting. Gruenberg examines the economic value components and motivations from the vendor side of the negotiation process and how those drivers impact negotiations with libraries. Be better prepared for your next negotiation.
