Library arranges access to a variety of electronic resources
which are available via the Electronic Resources web
page. Each resource has a licence agreement or terms and
for use which state, for example, whether material can
be downloaded and printed and whether electronic copies
You should be aware of any restrictions
and conditions attached to the resources you use.
The following conditions are found in
many of the licences:
- Only Authorised users
are allowed to access resources - Newman students and
Authorised users - but you should be aware that you
must not pass on any password details, either for
Athens or any individual resource, to anyone else.
- Many resources allow
the downloading of material (references to articles
if available) and printing of a copy for personal
use. The systematic downloading of all or substantial
parts of a database is never allowed.
- Use of downloaded or
printed material for any commercial benefit is not
prior written agreement from the publisher.
- Any copyright notices must not be
removed, changed or hidden from downloaded materials.
- Some licences do not
mention common restrictions, e.g. whether the items
can be linked to from Moodle. However, the copyright
statements for individual articles and journals within
databases will give details of what usage is allowed.
Please refer to these copyright notices. EBSCO databases
have some content with restrictions which mean that
you cannot put links to articles into Moodle - in EBSCO
databases you will find any relevant copyright notices
at the end of the HTML or PDF version of the article.
The summary below indicates this with ? in the "Link to Content
from Moodle" column for EBSCO databases. For example
- Harvard Business Review content in Business
Elite, cannot be used in Moodle and cannot be linked
to from Moodle.
The table below lists many
of the common restrictions and conditions regarding electronic
resources, and what you are, and are not permitted
to do with individual resources.
This table is given
as an easy-to-use guide, and may not necessarily reflect
any recent changes in licence terms - you
should view the full licence. Links to the full licences
can be found at the bottom of this page.
