Subject: [SERIALST] electronic access question

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!
