I have a million subscription questions so I am glad to see this

My library is really going to be a Community Health Resource Center. So
far I have a lot of books for the layperson, and I am hoping to counter
that by offering some databases that are more professional. I also want
to have some print journals. I don't have a very big budget. Since
joining this list in December, I've had the feeling that I was pretty
much required to get CINAHL, but these posts today have caused me to
rethink that.

Here are a couple of my questions if anyone cares to toss their 2 cents
my way:

1) Who do you use to manage print journal subscriptions? How do you like
the service?

2) Does anyone use any Thomson/Gale databases?

3) Any additional information/guidance/opinions regarding subscriptions
will be appreciated.

I am very happy with electronic journal services from ProQuest.  We just
had a free trial of their product "Nursing & Allied Health Source." You
may view information at

We are long-time subscribers to Health & Medical Complete, and my
library users are very happy with the product.

My contact with the sales and service reps has been a pleasure, compared
to some vendors. I urge any librarian to review the ProQuest products,
contact their sales rep, and set up a free trial to review products from
