New Hah. I was on the other side
My company had a pay to query database on CompuServe. I uploaded that database monthly to CompuServe. because I was part of the group that had access that meant I had free access to every other database on CompuServe.

Note: I had to ask an administrator to grant me access but no one ever said no.

The medical and lawyer databases were of special interest. when I wanted something from my doctor I would print out a few hundred pages of reports from CompuServe's database specific to that which he would then read over the weekend and of course agree with me.
