Authorized users – who are they?
License agreements generally specify the purpose of use of the content for licensing and sublicensing. Usage may include the following:
- Review or comment
- Private use or research
- Electronic reserves
- Training courses
Some of the concepts set out above may need to be defined for the purposes of your license. For example, terms like a “noncommercial use” or “commercial gain” may need to be defined. Do these terms mean the library cannot charge the patient for access? How do they mean that the use of content for purposes of possible patent application is not permissible?
