CD's cost money and there is time involved in making and distributing
them. As for soliciting donations, that's fine, but how many will
voluntarily contribute?

If the CD's were priced according to the true value of the information
contained therein, they should be a minimum of $25.00 per.  You can't
purchase software or databases or even a decent book nowadays for less
than that.  The funds generated from the CD's could at least help to
defray some of the expenses in running the site.

Alternately, a user fee could be charged.  For instance, free access for
say the first ten hits, then if the user wants to continue to use the
library, membership could be a mandatory requirement.
