What do librarians value and find essential in considering the
acquisition of an electronic product?
What features, pricing and access strategies will advance or hinder
the sale? How do companies communicate with
library users at different levels from advisory/user/focus
groups to listservs and
newsletters?  Come to a dialog among librarians and vendors about
issues and priorities that affect acquisition decisions.
