    I don’t think vendors or publishers are abusive or the ‘enemy.’ In my work with serials and eresources I have had good working relationships, and our consortium got some valuable deals. I agree with the other poster who stated that sometimes our own administrations seem more hostile and less understanding of our needs. But I do think it can become an unhealthy situation when an association or society publisher is also involved in university accreditation. They can then state that their products are necessary for a department’s accreditation. In my experience, I was never ‘gouged’ for prices because of that, but I wondered what other, more experienced folks have to say about that particular circumstance.
