With the Divine confusion, we are considering not working with a jobber
but instead, ordering titles directly from the publisher.  I'm at a
state-assisted university serving 9,000 FTE students and 500 faculty.  We
were obtaining approximately 600 journal titles from Divine.  I'm
interested in learning of any library out there with demographics
comparable to ours that is getting their journals directly from the
publisher, i.e., without using a subscription jobber; is anyone doing or
considering doing this?

Please feel free to email me directly.
