Alumni access to electronic resources?


we have recently been approached by our Alumni Association liaison 
who wants to give access to some of our electronic resources to 
alumni, perhaps for a fee. I have not checked specific license 
agreements yet, because details on which databases they would want 
access to have not been discussed. There are obviously various ways 
of doing this, but our Alumni Association proposed one way, namely to 
piggyback onto our licenses, some of which are consortial.

What  I wanted to ask this group is:
whether this question has come up for any of you
what potential models for access might be use in your institution
whether anyone has encountered licenses specifically restricting alumni
any other advice or information you may have on this issue
