Most of the library's electronic resources are governed by license agreements that limit use to the Yale community or to individuals who are physically present at Yale University Library facilities. Each user is responsible for ensuring that he or she uses these products solely for noncommercial, educational, scholarly or research use. Systematic downloading, distribution of content to non-authorized users or indefinite retention of substantial portions of information is strictly prohibited. The use of software such as scripts, agents, or robots, is generally prohibited and may result in loss of access to these resources for the entire Yale community. The Yale University Appropriate Use of Information Technology Policy prohibits violations of these license agreements.
The licensed electronic resources made available by the Yale University Library are for the personal, clinical, research, scholarly, or instructional activities of current Yale University or Yale-New Haven Hospital faculty, staff, students and other authorized users. Copyright Law (including the protections of "fair use") and contractual license agreements govern the access, use, and reproduction of these resources.
This statement conforms with the Yale University Appropriate Use of Information Technology Policy.
