Anyone heard anything about this title?  The last issue we got was vol.
71, no. 19, dated July 15, 2005; it arrived (was checked in) Sept. 28.

Nothing since, and I'm not seeing further issues checked in at other
libraries either.  On their website, the "current issue" is v. 71, no.
22, Sept. 15.

For us, too, the Sept. 15 issue was the last received.

I've been wondering what is going on with the publisher.  We had much
difficulty in the Spring getting our microfilm for 2004.  After repeated
claims we finally received it, but is was 16mm film rather than the 32mm
film we were used to receiving.  I was told that this was done to cut
costs. A week or so ago we received a "survey" asking if we would prefer
to receive CD's rather than film.

I have the same situation. I contacted my subscription agent who was told
the more recent issues were published. I claimed them but have yet to
receive them. That was about a month ago.  Still waiting,

The last issue volume and issue wise we have checked in the same as you
on Sept. 27.  They just appear to be running behind.  We have been
getting issues all year, but a few months we received only one issue
instead of two.  Nothing is skipped or missing, just slow from where
they should be.

Looks to me like this is now running behind publication schedule (and
still 'slipping').  Our June issues were received in August--July issues
received in September.  We have electronic access to this in 3
aggregator databases and the latest issue listed in each is the July 15

71:19 was the last issue we received also. In the past we regularly
received issues about a week after publication, but this year delivery
has been irregular. We have received all of V.17, through no.19, but 2
weeks to 2 months after the publication date.
