Responsible Sharing : Digital Content...

What can I do with digital content accessible via the University's subscriptions or invisibly accessible via my student login with the University? Journal subscription and other scholarly sources are licensed and managed by the University Library. But what can I do with it? Put another way; what constitutes responsible sharing of digital content?

Well, it all depends on the copyright.

Science Direct sets out a clear table of what is allowed and what is not when it comes to sharing scientific publications - or indeed any publication covered under a range of copyright types.
The ScienceDirect WebHelp page.

The key table is at the bottom of the above link page (source: ScienceDirect, 2016).
