Librarians are from Venus, Vendors are from Mars: Strategies for developing respectful vendor relationships and strong contracts
Please note that these sessions meet twice, Class Session 1 and Class Session 2 with a 1 hour non-class time project.
There is a class limit of 8 with a minimum of 2. Priority goes to NN/LM MCR Members.

Participants will learn strategies on: how to work and communicate in a language that vendors understand; how to make sure you are being understood; and learn the fundamentals of getting the best contract for your institution that also meets the needs of the vendor.
Each of the two classes is 90 minutes in length and is held live online via Adobe Connect.
Class 1 focuses on helping librarians work and communicate with vendors.
Class 2 focuses on resources for negotiating contracts and identifying contract terms important to libraries
