and I do network security here .. but it was the complaints from the
library folks that got us into hot water .. there simply wasn't an easy
way to block access to all of them without an overly-complex exit
policy, and all of our IP space is within a single /16.

Why couldn't your exit policy just block the IPs of the journal sites?
