Hi Sarah

This is not only a problem with Ebsco, but other serials vendors as well.  We
use both Ebsco and Turner and I have this problem every year but not on all of
our subscriptions are start to early, just enough to drive you crazy :@ .  I
just have the vendors claim those titles with the publisher as an early start
and to verify are expiration date.  I know this is a headache to go through
this every year, but when I mentioned this to the vendors they say it is the
publishers fault.

Good luck and now you know you why there are a lot of job postings for serials
librarians. LOL
