I believe you'll find information to that effect in any ACS publication ...
something to the effect that individual copied may not be given to a
library for five years. I can't recall anything offhand about other
society publications, but you might also want to check an Elsevier title
or two to see if they contain similar statements.

Subject: Need documentation on why institutional subscriptions

Some of the higher ups in the Chancellor's Office want to know why the
library can't cancel their institutional subscriptions and let
individual faculty members subscribe and the cheaper rate and pass their
issues on to the library.

We know this would not work in that half the issues would never make it
to the library.  We also know this is illegal

They have asked the Library Director to give them documentation on why
this is illegal. Has anyone see this written up any place that we could use?
