ESS Vendor Partnerships

Relationship Building

The European Studies Section (ESS) of ACRL represents librarians and other professionals who specialize or are otherwise involved in the acquisition, organization, and use of information sources originating in or related to Europe, the Baltic Region, and the Slavic Countries. ESS knows that collection development is more than buying books, journals and other media, it is also about relationships cultivated among vendors, librarians, and other information professionals. To this end, ESS actively cultivates relationships with vendors who specialize in content relevant to members of the Section.

For information about the Vendor Relations Committee, please see the Committee Page.

Financial Support

One of they key ways vendors can support ESS is by offering financial assistance to the section. Contributions are used annually to enhance intellectual exchange between vendors and members of the section. Most donations support events at ALA Annual.


Our fundraising cycle usually runs from November or December to March or April of the next year. Thank you for your support!
