Terms and Conditions

Specific terms and conditions may apply to access. For example, a location generally is defined as a street address. But there may be instances where the size of an office served by a street address (such as a government agency or large corporate office) is deemed too large to be considered a single location. In these instances, other definitions will apply - such as a specific office or department within an organization. In another example, a library that receives subscription issues for redistribution to individual readers will not be considered a single user, and will be subject to corporate access fees or site licenses which are negotiated case by case. Read our terms and conditions.

Privacy Policy

The publishers are committed to respecting your privacy. Information necessarily collected about you for account-management purposes will not be disseminated. For a complete statement about this commitment, read our Internet Privacy Policy.
