Licence agreements

TIB secures access to technical and scientific specialist information by negotiating licences with publishing companies and therefore holds a large number of publisher licences. A publication-specific fee is paid to the publisher with every delivery.

How may I make use of an electronic document?

You may save and print out the downloaded document. The delivered file is only for personal use; all rights are reserved, which means that you may not reproduce, process, duplicate or disseminate any part of the work without the written consent of the publishing company.

Which special features apply with regard to access rights?

Some publishing companies only permit electronic access with Digital Rights Management.

If you have any questions concerning rights of use and licences, our Customer Service will be pleased to help you.
