I just checked the SS Support Center and it is included with a sub to Ulrichsweb.
I had confused this with the XML data service (which *does* cost extra), so I never followed up. Thanks for mentioning!

Huh, that's a good question. We happen to subscribe to Ulrich and I don't know if it's included by default. I didn't even know about this API until Andrew Nagy mentioned it when I visited their booth at ALA conference to discuss something else.
In my experience, after I signed the document and sent it back, they sent me back a link to the documentation page along with the login information.
I have not been using it, regrettably. This is something I put on my goals and objectives for the coming year.
