If the data is static (additions made
but not modifications), what about uploading to the Internet
Archive? Uploads can be marked noindex which means it's not
listed (aka no one can find it with a search) and you have to have
the link to be able to access it. You could then post the link to
the upload(s) in the group and students could access it that way.
If you need to modify the data frequently, however, then a
different solution might be necessary.

Let's reach out to Mark and find out!
His relatively small operation a year ago was flooded
with payments to rescue our archives and I'm willing
to be that he's been responsible with that pile of
cash knowing that in a year it won't be as much.
He also mentioned at the end of last year that his was
going to revisit pricing so there's more options, so
we need to find out his latest thoughts on that.
In my case I spent the big bucks to rescue the two
most important yahoogroup archives and groups.io just
got downgraded this week when payment didn't go

archives represent 20 years of daily history that I

much need for other groups.io features and services.
How about all the other Yahoogroup refugees? What are
