Yes, Betsy, we now have online access to 2 titles which we also receive in
print.  I was contacted by my Customer Service Rep at ESS who gave me the
instructions to follow to get us signed up.  I would contact your Customer
Service Rep about the matter or your Sales Rep if that doesn't work.

You have to contact your sales rep (?) at Ebsco who then has to get your
IP addresses to pass on to the publishers.

Betsy, Call your rep.  I received a stack of titles that were available,
129 to be exact and have had a couple more batches since, re the free
online access.  Dahrl Moore, Florida Atlantic University Library

If someone from EBSCO is on this list, they may have a better response
than me.  It is my understanding that EBSCO is contacting individual
publishers on behalf of their clients and giving them information
regarding IP addresses, etc.  We responded to several letters EBSCO sent
to us and I have received  responses from several publishers with a
wide variety of instructions on how to access their online publications.
Some of the publishers make it pretty clear that they are providing only
a free trial subscription to online access.  Because there is such a
wide variety of ways to get to these various publications, I am not
sure that we are going to take advantage of many of these offers.  It
is difficult to get this information out to our patrons.
