Subject: Hello and SOS!


My name is Len Cazares and I am new to the list.  I have just become
serials librarian, since I was already periodicals librarian.  My problem:
I recently received an invoice with price adjustments for our periodical
subscriptions and have just been made aware three titles have increased a
total of $1000, since the quote I was given this past summer!  I've told
our vendor rep I didn't have the funds to pay it and to cancel our
subscriptions immediately.  He told me I have to pay the invoice anyway,
that they don't have control over this.  I'll be speaking with his
supervisor, and alas, will have to inform my director.  Any suggestions on
how to proceed with this situation?  Also, I've just begun reading Chen's
book, "Serials Management: A Practical Guide," 1995.  Any other
recommendations of books or articles to read to bring me up to speed?
Thank you for just being there; I don't feel so alone.
