    invite out

    Vendors will invite librarians whose job it is to recommend purchases out for business lunches and dinners and will otherwise court those who might buy their products.

    Would I summarize the sentence above as:

    Vendors will invite librarians out for business lunches and dinner and will otherwise court those who might buy their products.


    I also would like to know what "it" refers to? and who is recommending purchases; librarians or vendors? I'm really having trouble understanding the bold part.

    Thanks

    Re: invite out

    The librarians who will be taken out to lunch are the librarians who recommend purchases.

    It is the librarians' job to recommend purchases.

    Vendors want to sell books. Librarians buy books. So book vendors woo the librarians.

    Re: invite out

    Could "it" be omitted in this sentence?

    Thanks
