Best Practices and/or Examples of Search Results for Mixing Password Protected (members-only) content and Public Content

I'm interested if anyone has any thoughts (or examples) of mixing
password-protected (member-only) content and public content in search
results.

I have a couple of projects for associations serving a mixed audience
of members and the general public. Some articles/pages on the site are
available to the public and some are only available to members. One
thought we're exploring is allowing non-members to search the site
and see both public and private results, but only be able to click
through to public content.

Has anyone here had the same or similar experiences as Mr X?

Briefly, Dustin Curtis came up with a redesign of the American
Airlines website because of his perception of a poor customer
experience. A UX Designer from AA replied discussing the difficulties
of getting good work out of the door because of corporate culture.
