Ebsconet is a boon to claiming... rather than wait till the end of the
month claims report, I file claims online with Ebsco as soon as I notice
a missing issue; by the end of the day, I get a confirmation email back,
and usually by the time I receive their next claim checker (also
available online, with a slew of other reports) I've received the
missing issue in question.
I'm sure there are little points everyone would quibble over, but I
find that the online claiming, the capability to run reports on demand,
etc, makes it more than worthwhile.
Good luck... if you ever "make sense of all this entails" let me know,

I hope I'm not asking something that's been asked a hundred times
before, but here goes. I recently took over as serials librarian for
our library (after the retirement of our department head, who oversaw
serials for MANY years) and am trying to make sense of everything this
entails. We receive most of our print publications through EBSCO, but
up to this point dealing with management of our subscriptions has been
done by paper or telephone. I am thinking about using EBSCONET, but
wanted to know if anyone here has had experience with the system and
what thoughts you have about it--strengths, drawbacks, etc.
You can email to the list or email me personally if you wish. Thank
you in advance for your help.
