RE: RSNA 2011 Subscription Prices Press Release

I wish that as RSNA had announced this information that they also 
announced are also withdrawing access to their backfiles in order 
to create an archive for sale for 1923-1998 content.  I confirmed 
with my subscription agent that this was not announced in advance 
- she got the word from asking someone at RSNA on our behalf. 
'Complimentary' access to the backfile of content was suddenly 
withdrawn but I was only made aware when a user alerted us that 
Radiology content they could previously get to was no longer 

We've seen the 'librarian-friendly' librarian guide site that 
RSNA just put up, telling you just about everything except that 
previously freely available content is no longer free.  No 
warning.    I would say that negates any message I'm supposed to 
that they are librarian-friendly.  They could have at least 
waited until the end of the calendar year.
