AIP Journals and ILL Policy

(Sorry for cross posting)

I just heard that Online only for AIP journals will be 30% less 
than Print+Online in 2001 (for 2000 it was merely 20%). 
Together with the extension of the online archives back to 
1991, this is very good news but *only* if AIP changes its 
ILL policy. 

For libraries it is absolutely essential to be able to do ILL 
just as we did with our print issues (at least in the sense 
that we may print out pdf files and use these printouts for ILL). 
Otherwise Online only is no option for us. I have been told 
that AIP has already showed willingness to change its ILL 
policy for consortia agreements, and we sincerely hope that 
AIP will extend this to normal library subscriptions, too.

Let me point out that APS already changed its licensing
agreements to allow *printed* copies of online articles for ILL.
This will allow us to move forward and go online only for 
Physical Review All in 2001.
