About licensed e-resources
U of T Libraries provides an extensive collection of e-books, e-journals, e-articles and other electronic/digital content to its faculty, staff, students, and other authorized users. To do so, we must sign contracts with many different vendors and publishers of the e-content. Contracts contain specific terms and conditions that users must comply with, when accessing and using the e-content.
