"Rule #1: Once you have their money, you never give it back."

Many law librarians do not feel that they have the power, savvy, or information needed to act as strong advocates for their libraries and push back against administrators and other stakeholders when being asked to make changes to their budget or services. Star Trek's Ferengi species have an answer to this dilemma—a list of rules that guide these ruthless alien entrepreneurs to maximize profit with minimal risk. The Ferengi Rules of Acquisition provide an amusing framework for exploring how, when, and why to advocate for ourselves and our libraries. Presenters will address how to approach communication with stakeholders and vendors, build strategic partnerships, and secure needed funds and resources with a little more guile.
