Librarian- Vendor relations and discussions can be complicated and troublesome or clear and collaborative or somewhere in between.  Establishing positive communications and relationships between publishers, vendors, institutions and individual librarians is crucial to the effective provisioning of information resources.  This session examines survey results investigating how libraries and vendors might manage communication expectations given the changing nature of scholarly communication. Electronic resources management increasingly widens its breadth and scholarly communication continually grows its depth. Libraries and vendors have complementary and sometimes competing goals which are worthy of discussion.
