Whilst they've been good about responding in the past, I've had
problems getting through to the LDC recently too.

If you have WWW access, you might find it easiest to check out their pages:

Membership for non-profit-making institutions (which I think refers
primarily to academia, rather than to businesses having a hard time!
;-) is $2000 per annum, for which you get copies of all databases
released during that year.  At the moment "backdated" membership for
'93 and '94 is not available.

For the ones you're interested in:
