Many university libraries allow electronic access to a large numbers of journals (and databases like LexisNexis). Often this can only be done from on-campus computers (or sometimes off-campus, provided the user logins in and confirms they're a member of the university).

The electronic journal access is primarily intended for use by students and faculty (ie. funding for the electronic access is provided by students and other university funding). However, many of these libraries allow any member of the public to walk in to the library and use the library computers. In this way, members of the public have access to the the electronic journals. It's not terribly convenient access, but it's access nonetheless.
