Principles for Licensed Electronic Resources (ARL)

Did you know...
Contractual arrangements and licensing agreements take precedence over fair use, often imposing greater restrictions on use than does copyright law. The UConn Libraries strive, whenever possible, to enter only into agreements that allow access to and use of information in a manner that fully supports the university's mission.
