S26 - Relatively Speaking: Fostering Productive Library-Vendor Communications
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.

S68 - Discovery: Beyond Initial Implementation & Participation…and into OPTIMIZATION
Join a scholarly publisher, a discovery service provider, and a university as they uncover, address and provide examples of how collaboration across the groups can have a major impact on the discovery user experience, and ultimately the usage and value of library resources. In addition, the group will discuss issues of concern around search origination as it relates to the statistical information that link resolvers may inadvertently hide, causing publishers and librarians to see only part of the picture of how and where usage occurs.
