[Library Network] Conditions of Use and Licensing Restrictions for E-Resources

 On 2021-01-21 (1264 reads)

Use of electronic resources including databases, e-journals and e-books subscribed by Kyoto University is subject to copyright laws and licence agreements.
The licences generally prohibit the following uses:

  • Systematic and programmatic download
  • Usage beyond the private purpose
  • Reproducing and distributing

Violation of the licence agreements may result in the suspension of access to e-resources for the whole University.

There have been frequent recent occurrences of users unintentionally downloading or accessing large volumes of data using pre-read browser functions. Pre-read browser functions continually access links within pages in the background while pages are being viewed. As a result of this, large volume data downloads or large volume access of which the user is unaware may occur, even if the user intends to use electronic journals in the standard way. We request your cooperation in disabling these functions by making the below changes to your browser settings.
