We have multiple copies coming to the same name and address and have the
same problems you have with the same address and different names.  Seems
some publishers just never get it right!

I often call the publishers myself to sort things out (I only have a few
titles with this problem).  It's faster than going through the claims
process at Ebsco.

If you have all your copies sent to one location you could then create a
database to keep track of where each one has gone.  Inmagic software has a
database program and a library module that would allow this effortlessly
and would also give you the ability to track issues and create reports,
