    SUBSCRIPTION TO THE CANADIAN MINERALOGIST THROUGH SWETS INFORMATION SERVICES B.V

    As you may know, on 23 September 2014, Swets Information Services B.V. filed for bankruptcy. The court of Amsterdam honored this request, and as per 23 September 2014, Swets Information Services B.V. is declared bankrupt.

    Our reason for taking this extraordinary step by making this announcement is to mitigate the potential impact this situation might have on your institution and give you the time to consider your options before committing to your 2015 subscriptions.

    During this time of uncertainty, we strongly suggest that you consider using alternative subscription agents for any existing or planned MAC business or place your order directly with US.

    We would like to assure our valued customers that we will do everything in our power to reduce the impact of this unfortunate situation, subject to any constraints that MAC may face in this process.

    To ensure continuing access to its 2014 journal volumes for library customers that placed their orders via Swets:

  • The Association will continue to fulfil orders for electronic access to 2014 and earlier volumes of its journals placed through Swets and paid by Swets.
  • The Association will also fulfil 2014 subscriptions to the paper version of the journal(s), where the journal is mailed to the final customer.

    For those subscribers whose journals arrive via a Swets mailing address, customers should contact the Association directly to provide mailing details. We will do our best to minimize delays.

    Should you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact us.
