We have the same problem with Wa. post. We haven't done anything about
it. Apparently the history students use it some, even though it's so
old. We also put a link in our online catalog to the website, where they
offer the current day's content only (free).

Hello, we have been having a problem with a couple of our newspapers
coming late.  The two worst offenders are the Boston Globe and the
Washington Post.  These papers are arriving between 7-10 days late.
purchase these titles through Ebsco, they have contacted them and have
been told that there is nothing we can do because they come through

My questions are: Does anybody else have this problem (not necessarily
these titles)?  And what did you do about it?

I have one other, semi-related question.  Because of this problem, we
have considered switching these titles to an online-only format.  Does
anyone have any experience with this?  Among others, I'm concerned
providing enough computers to maintain a suitable level of access as
well as cost of downloading.

Thank you in advance,
