Subject: Publishers refusing to deal with a jobber

We recently received notice that a publisher for one of our journals
(Gifted Child Quarterly) will no longer accept orders through a vendor
(e.g., EBSCO). We will have to order directly from the publisher. I assume
that this change results from the divine/RoweCom mess.  Has anyone else
experienced this situation with other publishers?  Is this change of
policy a developing trend?  I certainly hope not.  We are already swamped
with work as it is without having to order all serial titles individually.
