Friday Fun: The Corporate Amplication Device of AALL's "Vendor Partners" and Their (But Not Our) Business Plans
If loudness equals power (and it does), how do law library institutional buyers get loud enough to drown out the nonsense of our association's so-called "vendor partners" while AALL officially knees down before the altar of vendor business plans to offer sacrifices as well as to alter, as in to castrate, to spay, their own library, not vendor, member institutions' business plans? Both are something other library associations refuse to do because they neither sacrifice nor try to silence castrate their member insitutional buyers' business plans. They loudly advocate for their institutional buyers and patrons.
Our so-called vendor partners are "whales." So far AALL is nothing more than "whale louse". [JH]
