This copyright and usage information does not change with exigent circumstances.

Articles
What to Do

  • Provide a link to the full-text article in the Library subscription database.

Any number of copies may be printed this way and will be legal under the licensing agreements CalArts Library and SCELC have with the vendor. Each time the Print command is executed through the browser, the database owner is informed of the copy or copies being printed and can then send appropriate royalties to the rightsholder of the article.

Copies of articles printed from databases may not be photocopied. Articles generated this way are in violation of copyright agreements.
