Online Library: Licensing

Our online library - find digital resources and help

When you use e-resources that Newman gives you access to, you must make sure that you're aware of any restrictions and conditions of use. 

You can see the license terms for individual resources on our A-Z of resources. Under the resource, click on the 'Permitted Uses for this e-resource' link. You can also see the full licence of many of our e-resources at the bottom of this page.

You must never pass on any password details, either for OpenAthens or for an individual resource, to anyone else, because only 'authorised' users, such as  Newman students and staff are allowed to access our resources.

Some licenses don't mention restrictions, for example whether the items can be linked to from Moodle; instead, the copyright statements shown on articles and journals when you access them, give details of what is allowed. Please check these copyright notices. In the 'Permitted Uses for this e-resource' we have marked these as 'Maybe - check with library'.

You can't put links to articles into Moodle for some EBSCO content - you'll find any relevant copyright notices at the end of the HTML or PDF version of the article. For example - Harvard Business Review content in Business Source Premier, can't be used in Moodle and can't be linked to from Moodle.

If you're unsure what you can and can't do for a particular resource, or want more information about licenses please contact the e-resources team
