Terms of Use of Electronic Resources


The electronic resources subscribed by the University of Regina Library, such as e-journalsdatabases, and e-books are governed by license agreements with resource providers.

Please verify that the license grants the necessary permissions before incorporating electronic resources into teaching materials. Terms of licenses are available in Quickfind.

Electronic resources subscribed by University of Regina Library are only provided for authorized library users—students, faculty, and staff—and are used for educational or research purposes only.

The Library wants to ensure that authorized users understand the importance of complying with terms and conditions set in licenses; failure to do so allows the vendor to terminate our access to their product.

The majority of licenses contain the following user responsibilities and access restrictions. As an authorized user it is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with them:

  • Use of material for commercial purposes is prohibited.
  • Downloading and distribution of entire issues or volumes of electronic resources is prohibited.
  • Sharing your right to access with any other person or organization is prohibited.
