Copyright & Usage Restrictions
Access to and downloading of electronic full text resources is subject to agreements between the Library, Malmad (Israel Center for Digital Information Services) and the publishers. Users of the various digital services such as e-journals, e-books and databases are expected to respect the copyright of the various publishers.
The access to and downloading of these resources are permissible to the Weizmann Institute community only: faculty members, staff, students and authorized visitors, solely for their individual use, for scholarly research and educational purposes.
Downloading or printing of full text of an entire e-book, e-journal issue or volume is strictly prohibited, constitutes a violation of intellectual property rights and is in breach of license agreements.
Abusing these rules may lead to denial of access for the entire Institute. Any misuse of these resources is in violation of the copyright laws and/or the agreements between the Weizmann Institute of Science and the publishers and will be considered grounds for disciplinary action against the perpetrator. In the digital library environment, it is relatively simple for the information supplier to monitor use and pinpoint abuse. While libraries are aware of this, individual researchers and students may not be (there have been several unpleasant incidents in which the suppliers have notified our library of such misuse).
The Institute reserves the right to take any legal actions against such perpetrator/s.
