Re: Publishers refusing to deal with a jobber (Dustin Larmore) Blackwell, Lisa 22 May 2003 12:11 UTC
Dustin, I have had a similar experience with Haworth press. Specifically, not a case of refusing to deal with the jobber, but rather, a case of paying 2 (or more) times as much if I choose to order that way rather than with the publisher directly. Given the reality of the workflow in most institutions, most publishers seem to realize that they are shooting themselves in the foot if they won't allow clients to utilize jobbers. Even so, some of them have deduced that we have no choice but to pay the higher subscription price for that "luxury." Lisa S.

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.
