Licence terms can vary from resource to resource. It is your responsibility to ensure that any copying you do is permitted by the license agreement. 


Licences may provide you with expanded opportunities for reproduction. However, licence agreements generally do not allow:

  • Systematic downloading of content, for example entire volumes or issues of journals or entire books
  • Use of robots, crawlers, or similar software applications to capture content
  • Commercial use of content
