It's Not a Seminar, It's a Webinar.
So, at the 'brary, we're trying to choose an ERMS (Electronic Resources Management System). This involves vendor presentations; vendor presentations that I have to sit through and at least manage to keep my eyes open. This was very difficult today because the vendor, who shall remain nameless, didn't come in person, they hosted a webinar. Oh, and it's important to note the the vendor was late. I logged into the Microsoft Outlook "Live Meeting" and dialed into the conference call, only to be greeted by a blank screen and extremely repetitive elevator-type music. About thirty minutes later, after we'd all been kicked out of the conference call, the presenter materialized. I'm thinking it's a 'no' on this product.
