Hi, I'm just wondering if this list is still active?

Has anyone actually dealt with the Walter De Gruyter license at

It is basically a "click through" agreement. It is not very good for libraries. Has anyone had success in getting it changed?

Any thoughts on the Elsevier periodicals listings at:

I notice that some links lead directly to a journal page, whereas others have a javascript popup

Does anyone have any suggestions or experiences to share about the Annals of Pharmacotherapy? (

About once every two months, we completely lose access with them.. it's very frustrating! Any success stories?

Please excuse cross posting

For many institutional libraries, particularly hospitals and clinics, security issues have always prohibited the libraries from accessing online journals via IP addresses.

The Journal of Histochemistry and Cytochemistry is pleased to announce the availability of online access by institutional user name and password.

The library administrator will control all user names and passwords. Library patrons will have access to online content but will be unable to access the account maintenance page.

For institutions interested in activating their subscription to the Journal of Histochemistry and Cytochemistry online via institutional user name and password, please contact the Journal business office, We will send you activation instructions and answer any further questions.

Ive recently discovered that NEJM will be offering site licences in 2004 via HARRASSOWITZ subscription services.

Please see link:
So hopefully user friendly site wide access will be available in the near future. Its about time NEJM!!!

NEJM just decided to cut off our institutions username and password access in anticipation of our Aug 31 subscription term ending. We had one of our six subscriptions with Divine and that was the active account, so they shut it down, and now we have no access.

5 workstations per subscription for a school that has way more than 500 workstations (not counting remote users!) is just not acceptable. They need to come up with a better access model, and soon. I think we'd even consider paying for e-access only instead of using the print journal, if they'd just make it an option!

Plus, we've just switched our IP scheme to proxy only, and NEJM does not accept Proxy servers!

For about 3-4 years now, I've asked the Chronicle of Higher Education when they are going to offer access by IP instead of password. For the last two years the response has been that IP access is forthcoming.
