License Agreements

The Dalhousie Libraries have negotiated individual license agreements with the vendors and publishers of electronic products on behalf of the Dalhousie community. The terms of these agreements vary, so it is important to check what uses are permitted.

Search for reproduction rights by publisher or source by visiting the Dalhousie Licensing Information page.

Please note that the Libraries’ licenses or other publisher agreements into which the university has entered will trump the Fair Dealing Guidelines. For example, an e-journal license may specify that adding an article to a learning management system is prohibited but inclusion in a coursepack is permitted.
