I never claimed any of the issues, but I didn't receive vol. 70, nos. 1 and
2 until Sept. 10, 2004, no. 3 came on Nov. 3, 2004 and no. 4 on Jan. 17,
2005. So far I have not received any issues for vol. 71.

Is anyone else having receipt problems with this title?
The library catalogues I search regularly seem to be getting it in a
timely fashion, but I am being given one excuse after another.
On October 26, I claimed vol. 70, nos. 1 and 2 which I saw checked in on
others' catalogues. I received a response a month later, those issues
"were just published" and we should be receiving them "soon". I
reclaimed in January, which elicited the excuse that the pub is " in the
process of entering all of our subscribers into our new subscription
system. Once they have updated all records missed issues will be sent
to all paid subscribers. "
By the end of January, other libraries also were holding # 3 and #4 of
the volume. I emailed our vendor again, and finally, on Feb. 8,
received #1 and #2. I told our vendor that, and advised them at that
time to claim #3 and #4.
I've not heard nor received any more issues and before I reclaim them,
thought it would be wise to find out what others' are experiencing.
