Vendor Changes


If you notice vendor change notes in the check-in record, send the issue to the Serials Processing Specialist for review. These notes should be at the top of the check-in record and say “PENDING VENDOR CHANGE: [info regarding vendor change and which issue to send for review]." There will also be a note in the check-in card prompting you to send the issue for review. To see what the Serials Processing Specialist does upon receiving these issues, go to the processing vendor changes documentation.

You may also learn about vendor changes from vendors or publisher correspondence. Any e-mails, vendor notifications, letters, editor’s notes, etc. that indicate an upcoming vendor change should be forwarded to the Serials Processing Specialist.
