Isn't this the same thing American Psychiatric is doing? We subscribed
to one journal from them, print plus on-line, and chose not to renew.
Access only in the library or even the psychology dept office would not
have worked for our students and faculty.
American Psychiatric Publishing is changing their subscription model in
2007.  Effective immediately, the publisher is offering two types of

1.  Limited Access

2.  Global Access

 The Limited Access option will allow access at one physical location,
such as one building.  The Global Access option will allow for access at
multiple locations, including campus-wide access and remote access.  The
Global Access options costs more than the Limited Access option.

Previously, the publisher did not restrict access for subscribing
institutions.  In effect, everyone was receiving campus-wide access.
Now, with the new pricing model, the publisher is charging more for the
site-wide access ("global access").

The Limited access is only for one facility, not for campus-wide access.

Subject: [SERIALST] Univ. of Chicago Press journals

Are there other libraries out there that are dissatisfied with the
decision at the Univ. of Chicago Press to offer their journals at two
levels of access:   non-Enterprise (1 geog. location & 1 concurrent
user) and Enterprise-wide (unlimited geog. location and unlimited
users)?   Till this shift, we have had multiple-user access to our UCP
journals at our one location.   Now our access will be reduced to 1
user, unless we pay the 30% higher price.   I have written to UCP to ask

them to offer other alternatives (such as 1 geog. location, 3-5 users)
or at least give us some way of knowing how many users are turned away
so we can make an informed decision about paying the higher cost.
