Use of licensed electronic resources policyThe William H. Hannon Library collects electronic resources (e.g., electronic journals, electronic books or database content) to support the instructional and research activities of LMU students, faculty, and staff. These resources are purchased or leased by the library either directly or through consortia and are governed by license and contract agreements. Each license or contract, whether purchased individually or as a group, contains strict guidelines on the use of the resource.
Each electronic resource includes a license agreement or contract that details permissions and restrictions on use. Common restrictions include, but are not limited to:
Loss of access privileges
Violators of our electronic resource licensing agreements/contracts will have their library access suspended and be subject to other campus or civil disciplinary measures. Violations may result in blocked access to the resources for all library users.

Electronic resources Loyola Law School sharing policyThough the two libraries of Loyola Marymount Univeristy, Westchester (LMU) and Loyola Law School (LLS), act independently of each other in terms of collection design and management, we will strive to share access to electronic resources when possible. Each campus will make resource selections appropriate for its clientele and then share the resource URL with the other campus.As a courtesy, when licensing an electronic resource, we will use the widest range of IP addresses possible, to give maximum access to both campuses. If the IP range is necessarily restricted due to subject specificity or cost, the subscribing campus will not notify the other campus of the new resource since it may not be accessed by them. Resources licensed from LMU will ensure off-campus access for LLS faculty and staff; LLS students will not be granted off-campus access.As a new electronic resource is licensed or cancelled, the campus contacts listed below will alert each other via email. Wider dissemination of the alerts will be decided locally.
