Excellent question. Much of the scholarly material Georgetown Libraries makes available is licensed for personal, non-commercial use only. The border between personal and commercial use may not be clear if, for instance, your class work is similar to that of your job. Blatant data-mining for your employer however, is a clear ethical and licensing violation.

Patrons are welcome to use our resources for scholastic work, and may share material in a scholarly manner when it is permitted. The terms of use are usually posted in the database providing access.
