online article: New Merck site provides a vast array of information

The link below from American Medical News provides a review of
MerckMedicus. [American Medical News is freely accessible to all].

MerckMedicus offers subsidized (free) access to health professionals for
the following resources:

"Praxis.MD (a point-of-care reference for primary care providers), DXplain
(a differential diagnosis tool), national treatment guidelines, the Merck
Manual, Cecil Textbook of Medicine, Dorland's Medical Dictionary,
Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine and MD Consult".

This brings up a question: Does this model of providing free access to
expensive resources (in this case, subsidized by an international
pharmaceutical concern) exist in areas outside healthcare?
