Class Description

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
