We have avoided obtaining Internet access to the full-text of Lippincott
journals for a combination of reasons; subscription rates for print journals
are high, a non-US premium of 12-20% added even if mailed to US address, an
additional 30% for site license, PLUS a second non-US premium of 12-20% for
Internet access.  All in all, a very expensive proposition for a hospital
library anywhere, especially outside the US.

There is a growing interested here for online access to some of the
Lippincott journals.  If you have negotiated with Lippincott for site
license to one or more titles, and would like to offer your advice or
warning, please do so.

Thank you.
