When using any database, electronic resource or other resource provided for your use by the University Library you must comply with the licence conditions that apply to the resource. The licence conditions may be shown on the database web site. Look for a link called "Acceptable use", "Conditions of use" or "Copyright". Licence conditions may also be shown on an article that you save or print from a database or online journal.
