Draw up a checklist of the desirable qualities that you would look for in preferred school library suppliers.
Factors that need to be considered when selecting suppliers:
– Do they provide a range of resources?
– Are the resources of quality?
– Are they knowledgeable in regards to the curriculum needs?
– Are they desperate to sell because of the commission they receive?
– Do they listen provide resources to your wants needs?
– Do they provide discounts for returning customers?
– Do they promote specials?
– Are they quick to respond to queries and mistakes? (I once ordered a teenage fiction book, but received a erotic novel instead. 2 moths later and after sending it back twice, I received what I ordered).
-Do they provide a preview period or online previews?
