Although Seton Hill has subscribed to a number of online journals which give users access to full text, the use of these journals is not unrestricted. Our fees are based on the number of users, which only includes faculty, staff and current students. There are also limits on how an individual may use the materials. Most licenses prohibit copying of materials directly into a course management system. Links to a journal are usually acceptable because the students will have to be authenticated through the library website in order to access the materials.
Here are some typical license provisions:
Participating Library and its Authorized Users shall not:
Rights and Obligations of Participating Institutions Participating Institution shall use best efforts to ensure that access and use of the Licensed Materials is limited to Authorized Users and that all Authorized Users are notified of and comply with the usage restrictions set forth in these Terms and Conditions.
