E-Journals Copyright Rules
* The e-Resources are licensed for
the non-profit educational use of the Institute. Copyright law governs use of these
* Users should respect copyright law
and the library is not responsible for any legal consequences arising due to copyright
* Systematic downloading, distributing, or retaining substantial portions.
Forwarding electronic versions of articles or the use of electronic articles for
commercial purposes.download entire journal issue or databases or an entire e-book,
are strictly prohibited
Why should we not do the above things?
- Improper use can result in denial of access for the whole Institute to all electronic
journals from a given publisher. Access to e-Resources is based on license agreements
- Library users are permitted to make digital copies of individual documents, that
is, to download an individual document temporarily to their own hard disc for non-commercial
nor the use of electronic articles for commercial purposes.
- Publishers keep track of patterns of use and where the publishers suspect misuse
in the form of systematic downloading (eg. more than one article from an issue,
continuous downloading from a particular journal etc.) they will cut off access
requiring Library to investigate and take action on those who have misused the e-Resources.
- There have been instances where publishers have withdrawn access to their online
resources to the entire Institute. This prevents access by the majority of responsible
users to information needed for their research and learning. It becomes obligatory
on the library’s part to investigate such misuses and report the same to the publishers.
Takes longer time to get the access restored and convince the publisher that re-occurrence
of such misuses will be stopped.
