We have been providing access to the OVID databases for a number of our
hospital libraries for at least 3-4 years.  These are small community
hospitals which are part of the RUSH System for Health and they have a few
residents each.  They each pay OVID a set amount per year for access and
they each pay me at Rush a $1500.00 surcharge per year for the modem line
and passwords, handouts, initial training and any troubleshooting

It has been a very easy process for us.  We give them each a modem and
dial up line and passwords.  Those who can come in via the Internet.  It
has been minimal hassle except at annual billing when hospitals can't get
it straight that they need to send a check to OVID and a check to us. 

If you have any questions please fire away!
