What copyright restrictions are there on my use of e-resources?

December 15, 2008

Here is a quick guide:

You may
download one article per journal issue per session.  Viewing an article on the screen counts as a download, not just saving an electronic copy of the file.  A session is a continuous period of time using the computer, like a login.  You are not limited to one session per day.
print out a single copy of an article

You may not
change or delete any copyright information
systematically download licensed content (i.e. viewing, printing or saving more than one journal article per issue per session)
display or distribute licensed material (this includes emailing a pdf, for example)
allow anyone else except authorised users to access the licensed content
use the licensed content for any commercial purpose (unless you obtain written permission in advance from the publisher)

Further information may be found on the OULS Copyright page.
