NOTE: The use of many of the University Library’s resources is governed by license agreements which restrict the use to the GSU community and to individuals who use the GSU Libraries’ facilities. Each user is responsible for limiting use to individual, noncommercial purposes, without systematically downloading or distributing substantial portions of information. The use of software such as scripts, agents or robots, is generally prohibited and may result in the loss of access to these resources for the entire GSU community.
*Please be advised that there is currently a known issue with EBSCO databases wherein you must consent to data collection before being given access. This is a system-wide change and alternatives are being actively worked on by USG developers.
For more information on current workarounds to access EBSCO when choosing to opt out of this policy, please see the LibGuide at https://research.library.gsu.edu/ebsco_privacy_access for detailed instructions.
