Terms of Use and Copyright

Before you start to access e-media (e-journals, e-books, databases) and/or to export data, please regard the publisher's/provider's terms of use. Accepting them is the precondition of access.

The University of Giessen provides its members with a large amount of electronic media subject to licence. These media are generally available campus-wide.

Library users who are not members of the university can only use the media subject to licence in the rooms of the library system.

Copyright applies to all publications, regardless of whether they are offered in print or electronically and whether they are subject to a licence or freely accessible web resources. Please note the Copyright Notice!
