There is a correction to my posting:

The APS points out that:

> Please allow me to respond to several questions raised by our 
> announcement of the availability of extended online backfiles for AIP 
> journals.

> Subscribers to the AIP All, Archival, and Combination packages do not 
> need to do anything to ensure the continued access to the 1991-96 
> backfiles after the conclusion of the free trial period.  AIP will  
> automatically include backfile access as part of these combination  
> subscriptions.

> Those institutions not subscribing to AIP journals via a combination

> continued access after the conclusion of the free trial period. The

Apparently, then, our institution will be free of this paperwork and only
those getting individual titles will have the confusion that is entailed.

This makes it even stranger that the AIP should go to this much work for
such a small revenue.
