Create a Software Contract Czar
The software vendors have a choke hold on us and they divide and conquer - they like to negotiate prices that are all over the map either individually or through regional consortia. We need to come together nationally and force a model that is would benefit all of us.

A great model for this would be Yale University's Liblicense Database of resources established by Ann Ockerson, Associate University Librarian for Collections and International Programs, in 1996. These resources provided strong guidance to database librarians at research as as liberal arts college librarians early on.
