Use of the online databases and ejournals provided by the University of Nevada is governed by license agreements. These agreements require the University to give access only to its students, faculty, and staff (though, in most cases, they also allow use by unaffiliated visitors who are physically present on campus). They also place certain obligations on the individual user.
Among these are the following:
- To use the information contained in these products for personal, noncommercial purposes only;
- To refrain from systematically downloading significant portions of the online content;
- To refrain from redistributing the content to others outside the University community;
- To refrain from copying or tampering with the software by which the information is organized and displayed.
As you use these resources, please keep the above obligations in mind. If you fail to adhere to them, you may lose your network privileges and face other disciplinary action. Severe breaches of the license terms can result in the entire University losing access to important online resources.
For more details about your obligations when using University computing and network resources, see the Information Technology Policies page
