Hi Matt,

A few years ago, we cancelled all of our Elsevier subscriptions and now offer access to articles in ScienceDirect via pay-per-view.  The library subsidizes the costs.  I'll be talking about this in a panel presentation at NASIG in Asheville.

But I'm not sure what you mean by a "token system".  Will you please define?

Has anyone canceled serials subscriptions and gone with the new pay-per-view token system
which some publishers offer, and if so, can you share how this is working for you?
