Emory database licensing agreements allow faculty usage for research, teaching and publishing.
- According to Emory’s Honor Code you must always attribute accurately and completely all data and excerpts or direct references you include in course research, articles, etc.
- According to Emory’s Code of Conduct, you can never share your Emory username/id and password with anyone attending Emory or outside of Emory or log anyone into any Emory electronic resources. See Emory University's Library Licensed Electronic Resources Conditions of Use Policy.
- According to Emory's Copyright Infringement Policy, students, faculty and employees are required and expected to adhere to US copyright law, which restricts reproduction, distribution, and other uses of copyrighted materials.
Current Emory Libraries’ database licensing agreements strictly forbid using any type of scripts to generate searches and mine content; examples of these databases would be Nexis (LexisNexis) and Factiva. Vendors are very diligent about watching for activity which indicates scripts are being used and they will not hesitate to turn off all access to their database without prior notification.This is not a question of the intent or purpose for the research; running searches for academic research is not the issue. The noncompliance issue is the method by which you are searching the database’s content, e.g. using a script.
If you have a need to harvest data for your research, please contact Ron Harris in order to explore alternative options; for example, Nexis does allow you to pay for a separate licensing agreement that is specifically intended for harvesting content.
One additional point of clarification: While our licenses do allow for manual searches, most of the vendors do have a record limit, and if you exceed it, they will also turn off access. It is recommended that even if you are going to conduct manual searches, if your need is a large amount of data, speak with Susan Klopper, Director of the Goizueta Business Library in advance of running your searches so she can let the vendor know.
The business library works with you to set up online access to your required course readings through the Emory Libraries’ Course Reserves system. Organized in syllabus order, these readings can be linked to your Blackboard or Canvas course for efficient student access. The OPUS system automatically enrolls instructors and students into their respective courses. Learn more about who to contact to get started, what information is needed to set up your readings, the turnaround time, and compliance with copyright.
All Harvard materials (e.g. case studies, HBR articles, chapters from Harvard published books, etc.) must be set up for student purchase and access via Study.net. This Study.net “how to” step-by-step guide will walk you through how to create your account and readings.
Request articles, books, working papers, etc. from firstname.lastname@example.org. If Emory does not own the title, an Interlibrary Loan will be processed on your behalf.
Complete citations expedite the delivery process.
Materials are delivered to your GBS mailbox.
