Yes, our faculty and students have access to – and are used to using at home, on their phones, etc. – e-resources they have purchased or subscribed to as individual consumers. However that same access does not extend to, nor can it be transferred to, the institution at which they work or at which they are a student. When you agree to Netflix terms, for example, you are agreeing to them for yourself alone.
Faculty should therefore also note that Seneca Libraries does not acquire access to such e-resources or services that are personal-user username-and-password-based, and that includes those from publishers that sell e-textbooks with PIN numbers to students. These resources are not readily licensed to educational institutions.
