***I started to say, let them demand what they want.  If neither you nor
your vendor renewed the subscription by some method they can prove
(IE, a signed renewal card/statement), they don't have a leg to stand
In truth, I am not at all sure a signed renewal card is enforceable
but one certainly would be ethically liable, and definitely if issues

***But in re-reading your letter, you say you are having a disagreement
a *vendor*.  Did your misunderstood conversation take place with the
or the publisher?  If it was with the vendor, do you have a personal rep
can talk to?

***This sounds like something that needs to be clarified - who said what
whom, what I thought I said, what you thought you heard, and are any
parties involved?

***Good luck, and keep us posted . . .

One moral of the story: never do any library business without a paper
trail -- 'orders' and 'cancellations' ought to be done through your ILS
failing that, with an e-mail. That way there is always proof of a
transaction and situations like the one described are avoided.
Parenthetically, if the title has been cancelled, and if none of the
publication or service has been received, that ought to end the issue.

We are having a discrepancy with a vendor.  I would like to pose the
question as to when a title is "renewed"?  In this case, they are saying
the title was renewed via a conversation with their sales person where I
even explained to him that this was a title renewed through our vendor.
the interim time period, before we paid anyone (publisher or agent)  -
decided to cancel this title.  So... was the title actually renewed?
are declaring it was and are demanding payment in full for a product
we do not want.  I would love to hear others' opinion about what
constitutes  a valid renewal.
Thank you.
