Re: ALA serials?? Skwor, Jeanette 12 Jan 2007 15:27 UTC

I have found ALA titles to be among the most troublesome to which we
subscribe; think it's akin to the shoemaker's daughters type thing.

Having said that, I will add, at the moment they are all relatively
troublefree.  And yes, I did go directly to ALA to get the problems
taken care of.  It still took some time, but the 3rd party I think was
just confusing things all the more.

Subject: [SERIALST] ALA serials??

Hi all,

A couple of years ago, our LIS coordinator had us order a number of
smaller ALA publications, such as Interfaces (Association of Specialized
and Cooperative Library Agencies).  We promptly placed orders through
Swets but we have noticed a number of problems with these titles.
Primarily, we are not getting the issues.  We've been working with Swets
to get this corrected but have not had much luck.

Have others out there been more successful in getting these for your
library?  If so, did you go through a subscription agent or direct?  I
am starting to think I should drop these from Swets and go to the
source.

Thanks all.
