Cambridge University Press

We have been very interested in gaining access to Cambridge University
Press journals for some time so in a way, this is good news. I will e-mail
Chris myself but has anyone had success getting them to move away from the
old username and password entry issue. We have a workaround but we don't
like it. Cambridge UP titles will mean that we have licences to provide
access to over 6,000 journals ( some duplicates ) electronically which
means that a user may be expected to know quite a few usernames/passwords
or we put the username/password up for the world to see. As I said we have
a workaround but our users do not like it.

Please either tell me I am wrong or let Cambridge know your thoughts.
