Out of curiosity, I emailed customer service late yesterday, rather than
going through Ebsco, claiming this issue for six of our locations.  The
reply I received back this morning gave me the choice of the issue or an
extension.  I did reply back that the issue was wanted and that an
extension or credit would not be accepted.  I have not heard back as of

Thank you for posting this.  Take note of this paraphrase from Rick
McCabe at Sports Illustrated:

"Those institutions that didn't receive an issue can request it either
through a toll-free customer-service <>

number or the web site, he said; already some have done so through their

serials vendor. "

Has this been true for ANY of you?  From what I was seeing yesterday,
we've all been told that they either refuse to send the issue or that
they're out of the issue.
