We use EBSCO for our newspapers and the only consistently late arrival is
the local paper.  Wall Street Journal, Chronicle of Higher Ed, Christian
Science Monitor, etc. are received the day of the edition.  If we
experience late delivery at all, it is due to our mail delivery on
campus/campus closings.

Most journal vendors also provide newspaper subscriptions, so if your
library uses a subscription agent for journals, they would probably be
able to step in to fill this void. You can find lists of vendors on
Acqweb.

I wouldn't reccommend EBSCO for out-of-town papers unless you can tolerate
late delivery.  We are currently receiving all of our papers through EBSCO
and some titles, LA Times for example, take two weeks to arrive. Missing
issues is also a constant problem with mail delivery.

Good afternoon.

I am a new subscriber to this list. I am in a bit of a panic, and was
wondering if anyone could help. We were informed today that the provider
of the majority of our out-of-town newspapers, Austin News Service, will
no longer exist after Jan 15. Could anyone recommend another service, or
warn me of services to avoid? Any information would be great. Thanks!
