Using the Library’s databases: Link, don’t copy!

The Library subscribes to a large number of journal, newspaper, and e-book databases. Since we are bound by licence agreements in our use of these databases, the guidelines of fair dealing do not apply. 

This means that you CAN:

  • read the full text online,
  • print a single copy of a journal article or e-book chapter for your own use, and
  • provide a direct link to the journal or e-book for someone else in the RRU community in an email, on Moodle, or in a document. (There are a few exceptions, but please contact me if you have questions.)

This also means that you CANNOT:

  • copy a PDF of an article or book chapter from the databases and post it anywhere on the Internet (including Moodle),
  • copy a PDF of an article or book chapter from the databases and include it  an email, or
  • print out an article or book chapter for distribution.

If you have any questions, please contact Melanie Wrobel in the Copyright Office at copyrightofficer@royalroads.ca, or call 250-391-2652.
