It seems to me that you would have to add staff to process all those
orders and do claiming, etc.  Your university might not like having to
cut all those individual checks, either.
Just a thought.

With the Divine confusion, we are considering not working with a
but instead, ordering titles directly from the publisher.  I'm at a
state-assisted university serving 9,000 FTE students and 500 faculty.
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
considering doing this?

Please feel free to email me directly.
