I'll reply to the list since I think the matter is rather intriguing. We
handle our subscriptions through an angent who receives all codes and
passwords (we have tried to get hold of packing slips but it's almost
impossible and you often need a lot of time to collect the material). I
must say it is not really straightforward to obtain everything you need and
we often, after trying to register, have to contact the agent again for
more details. Anyway when we have all we need we register for all faculty
computers by providing the IP address truncated with a *, most publishers
enable you to do this, and we send an e-mail giving the members of our
faculty all information necessary to have access to the journals.
