E-Resources Access and Use

All the electronic resources are governed by license agreements that limit use to the IIMT Community or to individuals who are physically present at IIMT LRC facilities. Each user is responsible for ensuring that he or she uses these products only for noncommercial, educational, scholarly or research use without systematically downloading, distributing, or retaining indefinitely substantial portions of information. 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 IIMT community.


Please Be Aware
 

  • Sharing an access password with unauthorized users--including family, friends, or co-workers--may result in suspension or revocation of library privileges. Non-affiliated users may, however, access most electronic library resources from workstations in IIMT. Downloading entire issues of electronic journals, several sequential chapters in online books, or attempting to create large databases from bibliographic files, is generally prohibited by license agreements. Systematic downloading of content -- manually or with specialized software--is detectable by information providers and may result in loss of that information service to the relevant computer addresses or the entire IIMT community.
     

 Appropriate Use of LRC Computers
 

  • The use of LRC computers is subject to the same policies governing the use of other LRC facilities, including all applicable  copyright restrictions, and license agreements.
     
  • Tampering with the hardware or software on the computers is strictly prohibited. Violations may result in Institute disciplinary action.
