Electronic Resources Contract Conundrums

Wednesday, April 25, 2018
11:15 AM – 12:15 PM
Oklahoma Ballroom South

Before you digitally sign that dotted line - do you really know what they are asking of you? Don't sign until you've heard from Adri Edwards-Johnson from Pioneer Library System and Sarah Peterson from the Metropolitan Library System about helpful hints on what to look out for and what to change every time. You'll may even gain some insights on how to build vendor relationships (prior to getting a contract), to make this process easier. Go home with a checklist and a new feeling of confidence in dealing with vendors and their contracts.
