S039: Perceived Gender Issues in Library-Vendor Negotiations
Diminishing acquisition budgets, big deal break-ups, and rising inflationary costs make negotiations between librarians and vendors even more important. With a review of the literature and a short survey among peer institutions, this brief study looks to investigate if there is a perceived gender-bias in vendor-librarian negotiations.

2/5/2018 - Update!!  Do you think that gender influences vendor-library negotiations on pricing and licenses?  Come to our presentation and hear what 200 librarians and vendors think about that!  Survey results are in and the perceived gender issues are very real and quite interesting.  Hear the story and what people had to say, and tell us how you feel on the topic.

Technologies have emerged so quickly since the onset of the internet that digital accessibility is often overlooked.
