Anyhow, we are not a public library, and we are academic library. But we
did not get that particular issue only. We claimed it as soon as we got
no 8. But until today, we did not receive no 7 that we claimed for.

Well....  just finished my phone call and was told:
"Your institution was flagged as a 'public institution' and so was not
sent this issue.  There have been too many complaints from doctors'
offices and other public places that this issue isn't acceptable there,
so we won't be sending it,"

When I told them I thought we could handle it and that we're a private
college, not a public institution, I got the line about they've run out
of copies and will extend for 2 issues.

I imagine they're going to get slammed for this one...
