We created a note with a link to a web page with all of our
subscription passwords.
The note is added for each of the titles that requires the use of a
The Web page with the password list is located on our institution's
intranet which requires authenticated login.
It works well for us.

We subscribe to EBSCO's AtoZ, and EbscoHost EJS and we have come up
a dilemma.  As an example, we access our online subscription to New
England Journal of Medicine with a password.  From our online catalog,
we redirect patrons to a secure web page which contains the password
a link to the journal.  However, if a patron accesses this journal
through our AtoZ list, they get routed through EbscoHost EJS to the
publisher's site, but are denied access without a password.  There is
way for them to know where this password resides.  I hope I've managed
to explain this clearly.  Does anyone have a solution to this?
