EJS allows you to show an end user access note in Registration Tracker.
You can give a user name and password or any other message you want your
patrons to see.

Subject: [SERIALST] AtoZ lists and password access

We subscribe to EBSCO's AtoZ, and EbscoHost EJS and we have come up with
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 and
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 no
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?
