Hello All,

Has anyone subscribing to Elsevier journal content via journals
consult/science direct been told by their rep that in 2018 Elsevier's "new"
policy is that any hospital who is part of a system must pay system pricing
for their independent renewals irregardless of the fact that the renewed
content is available to only one specific hospital in the system?

I see no rationale for this..... aside from a huge influx of money on
Elsevier's end!

Please respond to me directly and I will summarize for the list.
