Dear Colleagues:
With such an extensive overview of people on this listserv, I was wondering if any of you are aware of any One vendor that a media center could use to preview and order items from. In a recent move to streamline efficiency, our business department has asked the library and media center to attempt to find one vendor for all of our orders. This has proven successful with the print items but not with our media items. We use a number of vendors and even shop around for better pricing. For many years we have used a wide variety of vendors and each time I inform the powers that be that the range of specialties is too wide to utilize one vendor, I am told to keep looking. Professional Media was suggested and called but I have yet to get a phone call back from them on this matter. Are there any other vendors out there that specialize in this one shop format?

Any suggestions, or ideas would be appreciated.
