Authorized user

"Authorized Users" mean the institution’s employees, faculty (permanent, temporary and visiting), students officially affiliated with the institution, persons with legal access to the library's facilities on site using one of the IP addresses and contract staff (permanent or temporary). Authorized Users includes persons affiliated with remote sites or campuses of the institution in the same country as the institution and/or persons affiliated with the institution who are studying overseas at sites or campuses of a third party institution on a temporary basis. Access is limited to the site addresses supplied by the Subscriber except that, where the Subscriber wishes to allow Authorized Users to access the Service from terminals or work stations at locations other than the site addresses specified, this may be done via public access, caching and proxy servers, or some other recognized authentification system such as Shibboleth, provided that the Authorized Users only access the Service through the IP addresses supplied, and provided further that, in all cases, the Subscriber has adequate security measures in place to ensure that only Authorized Users access the Service via the applicable method.

Permitted use

Authorized Users may access, download, store, search and print hard copy of text. Copying must be limited to making a single printed copy or electronic copies of a reasonable number of individual articles or other similar items. No text accessed via the Service may be made available to non-Authorized Users, either for commercial reward or free of charge, except that for inter-library loan purposes a single paper copy of an electronic original may be made and sent non-digitally to a library in the same country as the Subscriber under fair dealing/use exemptions. In addition, for inter-library loan purposes, the Subscriber may make a single paper copy of an electronic original available to a library in the same country by secure transmission using Ariel or ILLiad (or their equivalent) whereby that electronic file is deleted immediately after printing. Such supply must be for the purpose of research or private study and not for commercial use or onward transmission or distribution. In the USA, such copies may only be made in compliance with Section 108 of the Copyright Act of the USA and within CONTU guidelines.

Access is granted to Authorized Users of commercial institutions solely for internal research, testing or training purposes or for personal use in accordance with these terms and conditions.

Access is granted to Authorized Users of educational institutions solely for private study or research for a non-commercial purpose by Authorized Users. Authorized Users of educational institutions may use the Service for educational resources, such as "course packs", made available solely to Authorized Users provided that electronic copies included in such educational resources are removed or deleted at the end of the semester or term in which the relevant course ends. Such Authorized Users may also make brief quotations from the content of journals, with the customary acknowledgement of the source, and copy and transmit content from individual online articles in "person-to-person" and non-systematic scholarly exchanges of information.

The Subscriber and Authorized Users may only use this online access in a way that does not breach the laws of the country in which they are accessing the Service.
