Orders for research (e-books)

The purchase of e-books on personal title affects the acquisition procedure, the availability, and the conservation of the content. 

In this context the library cannot order e-books since the license forbids to make the content accessible for the entire University.  

In this case, the academic staff member should place an individual order as he/she will be the only user entitled to have access to its content. 

The costs can be recovered by means of a cost note for the staff. The completed document ought to be sent to the library, along with the payment receipe. The Financial department will refund the amount paid.  

The purchased content cannot be deposited at the library after use and is therefore definitively lost for the University.
