Request Form for Special Permissions

  • Please prepare details of your project before consulting the Electronic Resources Librarian for negotiation of an amendment that would permit activity not yet permitted by the original license agreement with a vendor.  
  • It will likely require an additional cost or an excess fee which should be written in to the project's grant.  
  • Consider whether a project requires live access to the vendor server, an external hard drive to a particular date, and whether the job will be using tools not provided by the vendor's interface.
