Statement on Licensing Restrictions for Electronic Resources at UWM Libraries

Access to Library owned resources is governed by license agreements which restrict use to the UWM community and to individuals who use the UWM Libraries facilities. Anyone using the UWM Libraries facilities is welcome to use these resources on-site but off campus or remote use is restricted to UWM faculty, staff and students. Licensed electronic resources are owned by independent providers and are protected by copyright and other laws.

Use of licensed resources is for personal, educational or research purposes only. Authorized users are expected to check the provider’s web site for permitted uses and restrictions, and must comply with restrictions on use, copying, reproduction, distribution and alteration.

Systematically or programmatically or massively copying any of these resources is forbidden. Users are not allowed to distribute these resources beyond UWM faculty, students and staff. Users are also not allowed to sell or otherwise make commercial use of these licensed electronic resources.

Please note: these rules also apply to off campus Access via the UWM Libraries EZproxy service. Please see the OFF-CAMPUS ACCESS page for further details.
