I agree with Jerry. Our UTD usage statistics is so high that it's easy to justify the price we pay. I only hope that with some improvements and as promised, a good search software, Clinical Key will become more popular and usage will go up. At this point it's only a great collection of Elsevier's full text.

For CK with my patrons it's about $19 (less than pay-per-view or copyright royalties, possibly more than individual journals, possibly about the same); UTD is about $1.

I realize these are entirely different products but UTD is my standard for **really** expensive. Lynda Grayson, RN, MLS Bristol Hospital Library Services 41 Brewster Rd.
