Vendor relations is an area of critical importance to AALL members. In order to support efforts in vendor relations, AALL has established both a Vendor Liaison position and a Committee on Relations with Information Vendors (CRIV). Each has a distinct duty to AALL members. CRIV's role is to work on individual members' relations with vendors. The Vendor Liaison's role is to work on policy issues related to vendors and the legal information industry. Both are committed to providing members with up-to-date information and resources for working with publishers, so members can not only survive but thrive in today’s challenging environment. The Vendor Relations Policy
directs the Association’s advocacy efforts on issues related to legal publishing and legal publishers.
