Tips from the Trenches: Negotiating Tips from Librarians and Vendors

Tuesday, May 15 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm

The Hotel at the University of Maryland<> in the Jim Henson Room (7777 Baltimore Avenue, College Park, Maryland)

Many information professionals struggle with negotiations-we stress over the potential back-and-forth and worry whether we're getting the best deals for our organizations. But negotiations don't have to be scary, or an "us" versus "them" battle of wills. Join us for an exciting program featuring insights, tried-and-true tips, and "lessons learned" from both sides of the negotiating table, from fellow information professionals and seasoned vendor partners!
