We had one University press require us to order directly for 2009.
Fortunately we have only one title with them. I hate having to order
direct, but we need this journal. I also had another professional
magazine (not peer-reviewed) ask us to do the same thing. I checked
with the faculty to see if we could substitute another title and they
selected one we could order through EBSCO. Like you, I would be very
distressed if this continues.

Subject: [SERIALST] University Press and Ebsco
Is anyone else having this experience? And how are you handling it?
Recently we have received notification from at least two University
Presses and difficulties working with Ebsco.
A letter in April from one of the presses stated they had discontinued
their relationship with Ebsco subscription management system. We would
have to order directly from them.
Another university press sent a letter encouraging direct renewal as the
press's early renewal/advance payment did not get passed on to them.
Instead, the press will would not receive renewal orders until December.
And we were encouraged to renew directly.
Consolidation of our periodicals is very important to the operation of
our Serials Department.
Any experiences are welcome.
