Dear Serialsters,

If you have a subscription to Online & CD-Rom Review, it changed titles
and publishers for 2000.  The new title is Online Information Review.
The new publisher, MCB University Press, did not include any information
about the title change in the first issue.  Only because our vendor,
Blackwells, hounded for no service issues did this information come to

Most publishers do a good job informing us about title changes, but
those that don’t cause so many problems.   Non-communication = repeated
unnecessary claims.

Publishers need to realize that their lack of communication and s-l-o-w
claim resolution is directly reflected in cancellations.  What they
don’t seem to understand is that the journals that have receipt problems
are put on the cancellation chopping block.   We carefully study before
ordering a journal from a publisher with chronic receipt problems, if a
similar journal is available from a reliable publisher we may choose it

Yet another reason why Serials Librarians have gray hair.

                     GO BEARCATS!!
