What is your price range? If you want free access you will have to persuade
your Uni to provide it at that price. CD-ROM versions of MEDLINE are widely
available in Uni & hospital libraries in the States. Many of these are
networked. Usually they are only available to a local clientele.
*I* think MEDLINE access through NLM, BRS etc is rather cheap. Compare the
costs of access to Biosis, Chem Abs etc. These databases cost a *lot* to create
& making them available is not cheap either.
