Negotation Skills for Librarians

My colleague Yasmin was asking if I knew of any materials on negotiation skills. Here are a few things I came up with:

We covered it at NE2007 -- the audio is on this page-- it is program F1 "Negotiating Contracts: Tips, Tricks and Tools". I haven't listened to it (yet!), but I heard it was good.

AALL had a program in 2008 "Practical Negotiation for Law Librarians" (PowerPoint)

AALL's CRIV (their equivalent to CALL's VLC) has a webpage "Checklist for the Negotiation of Internet Subscriptions"

If you know of any others, please share!

Connie, thanks for posting these materials. AALL has some more negotiation resources on the Tools for Success wiki:

Brilliant! I didn't know AALL has a whole section on the website dedicated to negotiation resources. Thanks kindly, Julia.

Connie, if librarians are looking for negotiating material specifically in relation to negotiating license agreements, there is an entire chapter on this topic in the new edition of my book, Licensing Digital Content: A Practical Guide for Librarians. See the book blog at

Great blog Connie!
