Electronic Resources Terms of Use

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionSend by emailSend by emailPDF versionPDF version

The use of many electronic resources available through Morris Library are governed by license agreements which restrict their use to current SIU faculty, students, staff, and individuals who use Morris Library’s facilities (walk-in patrons). Off-campus / remote access is allowed for most of our electronic resources via the library’s proxy server for SIUC faculty, students, and staff only.

It is the responsibility of each user to ensure that these products are used for the purposes of research, teaching, and private study.

The following are strictly prohibited:

  • all commercial use;
  • copying or tampering with any software or code used to display and / or run the resources;
  • the systematic downloading, copying or distributing of information;
  • forwarding copies to non-authorized users;
  • removing or altering copyright notices.

Misuse of these resources violates the terms of Morris Library’s license agreements. Violation of a licensing agreement could result in termination of the resource to the entire campus community.

Additional restrictions may apply.

Any questions regarding license agreements may be directed to e-resources@lib.siu.edu or 618/453-4339.
