We usually get our newspaper on time.  It takes about 4 business days an
example is we received the Feb 4 issue on Feb 14.
Hope this helps.

    I'm hoping someone will be able to share information about subscribing
to the French newspaper Le Monde (daily) through Ebsco.  It is supposed to
come by surface mail, but does anyone know how long it takes for an issue
to arrive?  We have no other daily foreign subscriptions with which to
compare it.  Our Ebsco representative advised us over 2 weeks ago that our
issues are on the way according to the publisher (after a delay in our
order due to currency conversion problems with the Euro!), but not a
single issue has yet arrived.  I'm wondering how long I should wait before
suspecting there might be another problem with our order.  Thank you for
any info on this you all may have.

Dear Elizabeth,

We get the Le Monde weekly not the daily but it comes within five to seven
days at this time. It did take almost two months before we received the first

Hope this helps.

We receive our weekly issues anywhere from 6 to 9 days apart. We also
get them surface mail and our vendor is also EBSCO.

We receive the weekly Le Monde, and our reception times appear to vary
from 1 to 2 weeks, some longer, and several issues have not been
received at all.  Also, they do not always arrive in chronological
order.  All mail and shipping takes a bit longer to get to Alaska (
automated disclaimer there).
I imagine that just not being in Alaska should improve your service.
