Using Library Resources During Summer Break

mba on the beachNow that exams have ended, a rising 2nd Year MBA student’s thoughts turn to vacations and their upcoming internships. This post will fill you in on what Library resources, both print and online, will be available to you during summer break.

Using Library Databases During An Internship

The key point to consider when using library databases is to avoid the transfer of entire reports, articles, or data content from academically licensed databases to your summer employer. Transferring database content to a summer employer breaches our license with the vendor; and could cost the breaching user, and all of Fuqua, their access to the database.

Using databases to prepare for your internship without the transfer of content may be permissible. Please review the examples of appropriate and inappropriate use described on our web site; and email us if you have any questions.

Print, Audiobook, and E-Reader Use During the Summer

Leaving North Carolina for all or most of the summer? Don’t forget to return library items before you leave town.

Why? If the book you borrowed is recalled for use by another patron, you’ll need to ship it back to Ford Library. If you aren’t able to ship it back, you should know that recall fines are $3/day.

If you are borrowing a Kindle, you do get a guaranteed 4 week loan, but they can’t be renewed after that. Audiobooks are just 2 week loans.

Thank you for returning library materials before you leave!

Amy Brennan – Collection Services Librarian
