Subscriptions added/cancelled Lee Cheng Ean 02 Nov 1998 09:28 UTC

I am trying to finalise the criteria to use in order to generate accurate
statistical reports on subscriptions added or cancelled, but had some
problems with regards to bibliographic changes.  If it is a new title and
new subscription, then no problem, I would count it as one new
If a titled ceased publication, then no problem, I can count it as one
subscription cancelled.


a)  if Title A for which you had been subscribing to now becomes Title B,
how do you count this?  Do you count iit as one cancellation and one new
b) what about titles which merged, split etc?

I would love to hear from those who have been involved in the preparation of
reports in this area.

Many thanks in advance.
