“More than half of the serials listed in our huge international database are published outside the U.S., and over 4,500 of these come from Italy. Your EBSCO Regional Office can request any Italian serial you are interested in collecting, and my office probably has already established a working relationship with the publisher so that you and other North American librarians can place your orders with confidence.

“EBSCO operates 17 full-service non-US. offices which, in addition to serving the needs of librarians in their areas, assist all other EBSCO offices with country-of-origin journals. We continuously research important

Italian serials for inclusion in the EBSCO database in order to better serve our local customers as well as others like you around the world. And in unusual or complicated claim situations we act as your on-site representative to the Italian publisher to get the problem solved rapidly.

“With EBSCO, you are served by an international network of Regional Offices and publisher contacts. This provides us the unique ability to service your titles effectively — no matter where they are published.”
