RE: JAMA titles

Hi Susan,

This is only for traditional print subscriptions with online 

Depending on your budget, I suggest you consider updating to a 
Site License containing JAMA and Archives titles (differing 
options). See http://pubs.ama-assn.org/misc/inst_pricing2009.pdf 
. It is charged on a tiered basis. You can gain print copies for 
$200 each with a Site License.

Subject: JAMA titles

We've recently been informed by our agent that our JAMA titles 
(Archives of Dermatology, Archives of Internal Medicine etc) no 
longer offer a 1-3 user licence for 2009. I quote:-

"Subscribers may register 1 IP address or 1 username and 
password. This does not include proxy servers or wildcard IP 
addresses. Both new and renewing subscribers will need to 
register their IP address or username and password for 2009".

Any major Medical School has to have these titles, but the terms 
on offer are frankly ridiculous. Are we expected to take our 
subscriptions to multiple copies of these titles to obtain more 
than one IP/username access? Talk about a retrograde step!

Not sure we can do anything about this, but if anybody has any 
sensible suggestions we would love to hear them!

Best wishes
