Library Database Usage Policy

Databases and electronic resources are provided for academic research to currently authorized university faculty, staff, students and library visitors. Database vendors regulate our usage of these resources via licensing agreements, which supersede "fair use" copyright law provisions and govern how each resource may and may not be used.

Permitted Uses

As an authorized user, you have the right to search the database, view the results and to extract (via emailing, printing or downloading) limited data or articles for personal academic use only.

Downloading entire journal issues or data collections violates copyright law and our licensing agreements with publishers.

Prohibited Uses

You may not:

  • Email or send articles or other materials to anyone at another institution.
  • Post licensed material on your own website.
  • Use licensed material for commercial purposes.
  • Remove, modify or obscure copyright notices, other notices or disclaimers from licensed materials.

Violations

Violations are taken seriously as they may result in publishers terminating access for the entire university community or undertaking legal action against the university. Actions that violate the North Carolina A&T State University Computing and Networking Usage Policy (PDF) may result in disciplinary action.
