About Remote Eresources

This service provides access to a small number of our electronic resources. These resources are made available subject to conditions:

  • The British Library does not guarantee the availability of this service.
  • UK copyright and intellectual property law applies and additionally the publishers of these resources may have stipulated further conditions which will be available from links adjacent to the resource listing.

If you breach these conditions your Reader Pass will be suspended, or cancelled; the rights owner might also seek legal sanctions.
