Copyright and Licences

Access to electronic information resources such as abstracting and indexing databases, electronic journals and electronic books is subject to copyright law and license agreements.

Users can search, retrieve, print and download, providing it is for educational purposes only. The following is prohibited:

  • Multiple copying of printed or downloaded material (some databases do allow this for course packs)
  • Excessive amounts of material downloaded from a database or publication (which includes one complete issue from a journal volume)
  • Removing any copyright references or watermarks from downloaded or printed material and/or distributing copies of such material
  • The use of e-resources for economic gain or commercial activity

Some of our databases do not allow you to upload in Moodle.

Because we are legally obliged to report any unauthorized use we keep the following data for 180 days:

We keep note of who access the databases, what date and time, and what ip address they use to access the databases, and also how much data they download. We also cut off access to databases temporarily if you go over the allowed download limit. Don't worry though, this is very rare.
