Subject: Online services to contiguous research parks

Dear all:

The University of Illinois is actively pursuing construction of two
research parks, one near its south campus and one near its north campus.
The subject of provision of library services to the companies that may be
located in them has been raised.  Obviously, the service of most interest
would be access to the databases to which the library subscribes (and in
some form so that the Library could pass on any additional costs to the
companies involved).   I can think of many reasons why this might be
exceedingly difficult to negotiate and am wondering if anyone out there has
encountered this situation and worked out some kind of a solution.  Thanks
for any advice.
