UKSG Negotiation Skills for Librarians

Thursday 21 June 2018 

The King’s Fund/No. 11 Cavendish Square, London W1


Workshop Summary


A highly practical one-day workshop developing knowledge, skills and confidence to support academic librarians and consortia members engaged in negotiating with publishers and other vendors for electronic resources.  Librarians will be able to apply what they learn immediately to ongoing and future negotiations, both new deals and renewals.


Is this Workshop for You?


Negotiation Skills for Librarians has been written for serials and acquisitions librarians and consortia members involved in the acquisition of electronic resources in academic institutions or on behalf of academic consortia*.  Written at an introductory-intermediate level, the workshop is for those who are new to negotiations or who have some negotiation experience and are seeking a ‘refresher’ and/or additional tips, skills and knowledge.  It will also benefit those being trained to undertake purchasing roles in the future.  More experienced negotiators are welcome to attend but are asked to be aware of the intended level of this workshop.  The workshop focuses on e-journals and other serially published content (although some of the learning will support eBook/database acquisition).


 *Although the primary focus of the course is on e-resources acquisition in an academic environment, information/knowledge workers in public libraries and corporations are welcome.  Equally, although the course is designed primarily for those new or relatively new to publisher negotiations, more experienced negotiators have found it to be of great benefit.
