License Restrictions

Statement from UCD University Library's Policies Regarding Computers in Libraries

Electronic resources available through the UC Davis libraries are licensed by the university for non-commercial use by UC faculty, staff, students and on-site users, for educational or research purposes only. Additional restrictions may apply to on-site users of certain databases. The terms and conditions of the UC and UC Davis agreements with the vendors and publishers of these electronic resources regulate the use of these resources. These conditions include, but are not limited to, restrictions on copying, republishing, altering, redistributing and reselling the information contained therein. Fee-for-service providers may not copy and resell texts from licensed sources to non-subscribing individuals, institutions or organizations.

Specific examples of prohibited uses include systematically retaining or printing licensed content like an entire issue of a journal, transmitting an article to a mailing list or an electronic bulletin board, or enabling others to be able to dispense with a subscription. Restrictions vary from resource to resource and you should not assume that a permitted use at one site indicates a general rule applicable to all sites.

You are personally accountable according to the UCD Computer Use Policy (http://manuals.ucdavis.edu/ppm/310/310-23a.pdf)PDF for respecting copyright and licensing requirements. Breaches of University license agreements could result not only in loss of your own access, but loss of access for the entire UC Davis community.

Copies of agreements entered into by the California Digital Library (CDL) on behalf of the University of California system can be viewed at: CDL License Agreements (http://www.cdlib.org/inside/resources/redactions/). For further questions about conditions of use or other licensing restrictions, contact the library.
