Depending on tech expertise on-staff, it's plausible to have your own
portal to the journals (wrapping your own logins so the end-user doesn't
see them, if that's the issue).
But I tend to come at things with a "you could write a program to..."
hammer, as that's my background--and that might be more effort than
creating separate logins to each journal.
