Subject: LION

I would like to hear from users all over the world about LION,
Literature Online, Chadwyck-Healey's literary database service at a certain
price... How do we rate quality, availability, possibilities, price,
etc.? After a two-month trial period I'm not convinced of its
necessity. I find it expensive, slow at times, the edtions it uses
are sometimes of poor quality (due to copyright problems, I assume),
its web-resources are often unstable and limited.
