The political aim should be:

NO discrimination for non-affiliated registered users of academic and research libraries.

Who has the right to borrow should also have the right for remote access.


Not only public libraries are for the public.

It's absolutely false to see only the legal question.

A donor is no staff, student, or alumnus. Thus a negotiation with the vendors would be necessary and should be undertaken!

If there are some few donors a librarian can give them access rights "under the hands" but advertising with this privilege would be too problematic.
