Bernie, At Science Online, we now have two ways of working with consortia: 1) me! 2) Highwire Marketing services Until recently, #1 was the only option, and we've had very good luck closing a number of consortial arrangements with rather diverse groups, including international consortia, US university consortia, and government agencies. This has been a good way for me to experience lots of different types of consortial needs and expectations. However, working with consortia isn't my only role here, so I've been spread pretty thin. To address this, we are now also working with Highwire's terrific marketing folks, who as you know, have not only acquired a good deal of experience working with consortia, but also are themselves from the library community. Vicky Reich and Jim Hydock are probably already known to many of you on the listserv, and they can be contacted about Science Online as well as the other high impact journals hosted at Highwire. We're expecting this extra market coverage from Highwire will improve our ability to close consortial deals faster and with an even broader variety of groups, especially internationally. Hope this helps. My contact information is below, in case you or others would like to get in touch.

Author: "Sloan; Bernie" <email@example.com> at Internet Date: 9/2/99 5:50 PM I was wondering how many publishers/aggregators/vendors of Web-based electronic resources have strategic account specialists, marketing folks, or other similar staffers charged solely with dealing with library consortia? It seems as if the consortial marketplace (including the number of individual consortia) continues to grow, and I am curious about what different vendors are doing to accomodate this way of doing business. If you are such a consortial rep, or if your company or organization has someone charged with this task, I'd appreciate hearing from you. Thanks!
