        I also use EBSCO and can not recommend them.  I end up calling
publishers (thanks for 800 numbers), then calling EBSCO to let them know
what the problem is.  I really think this is EBSCO's job.

I have had good service from Ebsco. We just switched over to them from
another vendor, which was less than satisfactory. They really made the
transition as smooth as possible. As far as receiving journals with
address variations, duplicates, etc., that is the publisher's fault, not
Ebsco's. We routinely photocopy the address labels of the two dups and fax
the sheets to Ebsco every week or two, and they contact the publisher.
Sometimes the publishers respond, after some time, and sometimes not. But
that just gives is more issues to share on Backserv!.
