Electronic information sources at UWB
Students, academic and scientific staff members of UWB are provided with professional electronic information sources (E-resources). These are mainly commercial information sources, to which UWB has a purchased license thanks to significant support from the MEYS (Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports) programmes and EU support.
Under license agreements, the E-resources may only be used for one´s own study and research needs and must not be used for commercial purposes. Mass-scale downloading of data from individual sources, exceeding the actual personal study and research needs, is considered a violation of the license terms and may lead to blocking of access to the given E-resources for the whole university!!!
All computers at UWB enable access to licensed sources; most of them can also use remote access through the Shibboleth technology.
