Following on from the Editorial in the Summer issue of the journal, where we looked forward to a discussion on publisher's pricing practices, the Publishers' Panel duly took place at the Edinburgh Conference. The AALL Guide
Publishers was explained to us by Tory Trotta, incoming President of AALL. Unfortunately, the issue of pricing is not included in the Guide as AALL believe it is an area in which AALL should not intervene, as long as publishers are behaving in a fair and legal manner. The draft BIALL Code was also discussed and there were some interesting contributions from the floor on how relations with publishers could be improved, but the thorny subject of pricing was not given an airing.
