The license negotiation process can be daunting, especially for new career librarians. It requires knowledge of applicable laws in addition to established and upcoming professional standards. With the increased interest in Open Access, licensing librarians are being asked to acquire even more expertise. Just starting a negotiation process can be challenging for organizations with limited staff and funding. But, through knowledge sharing and understanding the vendor's point of view, libraries can create licenses which benefit their patrons and are able to get to "yes" as quickly as possible.
