Hi Sylvia

I believe there is a way to put your username and password access on the ejs
platform so users who authenticate will have the information.  They can then
jump to the journal and access on their own with the username and password.
Speak to your customer service rep at Ebsco and ask where the information
can be placed.  I haven't done this in a while because all our titles are IP
access but I know other libraries have done this.  I believe it is a journal
note.

Good morning Collective Serials Wisdom,

I'm curious as to what other libraries are doing about access to electronic
serials that will not authenticate except through their own
username/password screens even if they are part of a larger database such as
EJS or NCLive (October and Film score monthly are two examples). We'd rather
not hand out usernames and passwords, nor does our Ref. librarian want to
have to type them in herself each time someone wants to search these titles
(as the publishers seem to think should happen).

Please copy any replies to me, as I'm on digest. Thank you in advance for
your insight!
