We have solved this problem by getting all of
 these titles online only, so we don't have to bind them at all.
As for people finding their articles, there are the links in PubMed, and sfx.
Incidentally, we've done exactly the same with all the multisection biomedical
titles from Elsevier and APS etc--online only.
Still problems, but one set of problems, not two.
