I just did a quick check through my subscription agent and the online versions are NOT IP supported, and there is explicitly no password sharing allowed, so I guess that means that there will be a flurry of cancellations on the part of libraries.

I heard a rumor that U.S. News & World Report was going online only in January 2009. We didn't get notified, however. Our subscription agent is telling us that the pattern has changed from weekly to monthly. On the U.S. News & World Report website, the publisher is only offering individual subscriptions to the weekly online magazine. There is no mention of print or institutional subscriptions to online.

Does anyone know what is happening? If this is a monthly, any guesses how long this will last?
