GBL and Emory Libraries’ license electronic resources (e.g. databases, ejournals, ebooks, etc.) for academic use only by current Emory University faculty, students, and staff. This means you can use them for your coursework, career exploration and personal enrichment.
You are strictly forbidden from using databases for employers or internships, or providing direct access to anyone at these or other organizations. Breach of this may result in vendors’ canceling access, and students/individuals possibly facing disciplinary action for non-compliance with Emory’s Honor Code.
What can you use Emory's licensed databases for?
- Experiential course-related client projects (e.g. Goizueta IMPACT360)
- GBS course assignments
- Faculty-supervised directed studies
- Career exploration and interview preparation
- Case competitions
- Personal enrichment
Conditions for Proper Use of Databases
You are allowed to excerpt or summarize small portions of reports, articles, data and other documents for inclusion in presentation decks, papers, and all other project and course deliverables.
You can never distribute to any project-related clients or anyone outside of GBS any reports, articles, spreadsheets, data, etc. from Emory’s licensed resources.
You must always accurately cite all content used. For guidelines for correctly citing sources in your decks or bibliographies, see the GBL Citation Guide for papers and the GBL Citation Guide for PowerPoint presentations.
