      Description

      Cornell is working on getting Worldcat to display and respond to requests correctly. Our legacy z39.50 server didn't require authentication via user name / password, but our FOLIO instances require it. This prevents Cornell from displaying availability in WorldCat, which isn't able to support the username / password authentication.
       
      We would like username / password authN to be optional on Z39.50 so that Worldcat can display availability. Since it's a read-only query service of public data, the risk should be minimal.

      Z39.50 authentication is optional: as described at https://github.com/folio-org/Net-Z3950-FOLIO/blob/master/doc/from-pod/Net-Z3950-FOLIO-Config.md you can configure your server with a username and password to use when none is specified by the Z39.50 client's Init request.
