Robert brings up an interesting point... if you use dialup from home,
what is your usual speed? (no need to answer)...  mine is either
26.4kbs or 28.8 kbs (rare). It's just fast enough to access web based
opacs and subscription full text databases if they have ascii or html
based full text in my experience. If you are really connecting at
much slower speeds I can see a problem with accessing your college
library's full text databases. But, if you have dialup speeds at
least equal to mine, you shouldn't have to depend on local resources
in the library.

Most library opac systems allow for offsite access to the opac, and
offer a way to extend access to subscription databases. All it takes
is some form of id that the system recognizes as vaild. Usually a
library card number. If your college, university or public library
doesn't offer this type of access, time to start asking why not?
Anyone taking an online program should have 24 hour access to library

As for the lmnet archives, I think the default operator is really ADJ
(adjacent) or phrase, or ' resources AND challenge ' would have had
