Whilst it is now very straightforward to download, print and share the full text of articles within some eresources and bibliographic software systems, both internally and externally, this is rarely permitted in terms of copyright. If you decide to utilise fulltext sharing options, please note the following:
As yet, there has been no test case demonstrating that the sharing of full text documents, internally or externally, is acceptable under existing copyright exceptions.
Whilst using documents for personal use is acceptable, sharing these full text documents may not count as personal use or come under the illustration for instruction exceptions. You must therefore always refer to individual licences.
If you are in any doubt, do not share full text materials with others.
