In addition to the headaches of more paperwork and billing cycles that have already been elaborated on, there is also the claiming headaches that are eliminated with a vendor. Sometimes it actually is easier to work with a small press in billing and claiming, but it's not usually worth the bother to have individual accounts.

Subject: [SERIALST] Subscription Bargains


I'm wondering if anyone does not use a subscription service and instead
subscribes to their journals individually. I realize the amount of work
involved in such an undertaking, but as my renewal notices are pouring
in, I can't help but notice the great deals we are missing by
subscribing annually, especially on the popular magazines like Sports

I am, by nature, a bargain hunter so I'm finding this painful. Is it
totally unrealistic to "go it alone?"

Thank you,

Jaime Hammond
