The Stanford Business Library licenses electronic resources for academic uses by Stanford University faculty, students, and staff. You must follow these rules:
- You must properly cite your sources.
You may not distribute data, documents, or reports from library databases to non-Stanford affiliates.
- You may not share your Stanford University or database-specific username and password with anyone; doing so is a violation of University policy.
- Systematic downloading, distributing, or retaining substantial portions of information is prohibited. Vendors monitor usage and can detect when users are scraping or downloading a significant amount of content and can shut off access to the entire campus. If you are trying to download, access, or scrape large amounts of content, please Ask Us so we can help find a solution.
- You typically cannot feed data/text from library resources into an AI program (e.g. ChatGPT). If you want to do this, Ask Us so we can check the license terms. This is because library resources are, for the most part, the intellectual property of the publisher who can restrict the right to use AI on their content.
- These resources may not be used to commercially benefit for-profit or non-profit organizations. You may consult library resources to augment the practical knowledge you gain during an internship. You may share with your team in your own words a summary-level description of what you have learned from library resources during your internship.
