I’ll Be Back: Post-Purchase Activities and ROI

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What kinds of services and support should be expected after purchasing? Vendors are increasingly providing post-sale services to their customers, typically in the form of Account Development. This panel discussion will examine experiences that vendors, libraries and consortia have had with each other, including which services have been beneficial and what is still needed. Learn specific examples of past collaborations, such as customized trainings, usage analysis and professional development events. Librarians and vendors alike will have the opportunity to learn from their peers about making the most out of their resources. Afterwards, panelists will welcome questions and anecdotes from the audience.
