A similar, but not identical, service is provided by CARL.  To use it,
telnet to database.carl.org and access the "Uncover" service.
Searching if free.  Moreover (also for free), you can set up a user
profile and have journal contents automatically emailed to you as they
become available.

If this sounds too good to be true, it isn't.  The way they make money
on this is by also offering to fax copies of any article to you.  You
can set up an account and then just indicate which articles to have
sent to you.

Quite a handy service!
