I hear you Connie! Our reference department has had to purchase additional binders to house the one-sided print records. It seems S&P is trying to save a dollar or two in shipping expenses while letting the printing and processing expenses be incurred by the libraries. The LexisNexis Academic database supposedly has the online corporation records current news edition but I have yet to find them.

How are others dealing with this change in format from S&P from print to
email only for their Corporation Records.
I must continue to register extreme dismay and an ecologically-based
protest about the recent move by S&P to email the corporation records,
daily, biweekly, etc. We have not printed out on one side (as we do not
have double-side capability) one inch of documents, compared to the
previously received thin paper/front/back publications. This is a huge
waste of space and time.
I hope that the S&P staff will reconsider or consider an IP-based
access. This email think is absurd.
Because S&P bundles packages and pricing for libraries, to pull out one
title, does not achieve measurable cost-savings either.

I'd appreciate others commiserating, providing alternate possibilities,
or assuring me I'm not off-base in this assessment.
