standing orders for government publications Cathy Gordon 31 Jan 1991 15:48 UTC

We have chronic difficulty getting good service on the standing orders we
maintain for GPO annuals, etc.  Since these are frequently reference
materials, and are needed promptly by our branch libraries (depository copy
being kept in central Government Documents Dept.), we require reliable and
prompt receipt.  We pay our current vendor extra to handle standing
orders for GPO material, but are not satisfied with the result.  The
alternative of ordering each year monographically puts a burden on staff
memory and time.

Has anyone a suggestion for a vendor who can handle GPO standing orders
consistently?  Thanks.
