Below you can see the subscription details. There are three subscribing accounts, and a total of 10 subscriptions or copies, which all tie to Ringgold ID 10624, the Stanford University School of Medicine. It is not uncommon to have multiple subscribing accounts for a single institution, so this shows where a publisher might have duplicate accounts.

Also, the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center which is a subsidiary of Ringgold ID 10624 has two subscriptions. These are included in the total subscribers/subscriptions.
