Licensing

ASME's license agreement is a legal document protecting the rights of our customers and ASME. Every customer is required to sign a license agreement at the start of their site license. Additional publications, license period extensions, and policy changes may be added by addendum.

ASME's license agreement includes terms requested by libraries from the academic, corporate and government sectors. Agreements have been developed to protect the rights of our customers and to grant rights to use content in ways specific to an electronic resource and closest to traditional print usage.

License Agreement Glossary:

  • Licensed material - content able to be accessed by the customer under the license agreement.
  • Access details - the identified Institutional Administrator and targeted IP range.
  • Supply period - the start and end dates of the site license access period.
  • License fee - the total price for access to all licensed material for the supply period.
  • Terms - the interpretation of the agreement, including usage rights and restrictions, terms and warranties, and customer services.
