When requesting pages include the phrase "for binding; please do not
reduce, etc."; anything that defines the purpose of the request.  The
sender should explain any pages not sent: e.g. "page contains ads only",
etc.  We have been doing this for over 25 years that I have been working
in Serials/ILL and it has almost always worked satisfactorily.
