Use of all library online resources (e-journals, databases, and e-books) is subject to copyright laws and contractual agreements. Violation of copyright law and/or terms of the agreements may result in the suspension of access to online resources for the entire EMU community.
Here are examples of what publishers refer to as “excessive downloading”:
Other License Violations:
Other actions which would also violate license terms include:
Publishers monitor overall account activity and when they notice excessive downloading, will immediately terminate the library’s access to their resource. They notify the library of the problem and the library is required to investigate and notify the individual of their violation of the contract terms and receive assurances that they will not do it again. Once resolved, the vendor is notified and the service is restored.
