RE: library web site disclaimer

We have a disclaimer on our electronic journals pages: 

"The downloading of entire journal issues or complete journal volumes in a
systematic fashion is strictly prohibited.  Furthermore, attempts to
download the entire database is also prohibited by the license agreement
between the publishers of these journals and East Carolina University.  
It is prohibited to make print or electronic copies for redistribution to
non-subscribers or non-subscribing institutions.  Web activity is
monitored by individual publishers and violation of the licensing
agreement could result in cancellation of this service."

We don't have anything on our databases page, and we haven't thought about
it yet, even though I use the word "database" in the above statement.  
I'd be interested in hearing what others on this list do; as a member of
our web committee, I may bring it up at our next meeting.

Subject: library web site disclaimer

We would like to remind users of our library databases that licenses
prohibit use for commercial purposes.  Does anyone have this type of
disclaimer posted on their library website?

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
