Guidelines + Forms


As opposed to freely accessible information on the Internet, which is as a matter of principle also subject to copyrights, special provisions have to be observed with respect to the resources offered by the library of the Medical University of Graz via the search portal. These are either rooted as general provisions in the respective national copyright laws or in the Universities Act 2002, specified in the user guidelines of the library, or codified in the university’s individual licence agreements with the publishing houses.

§2 (7) User Guidelines: “The users are solely responsible for observing all copyrights and other intellectual property rights. The users expressly commit to indemnify the Medical University of Graz for all costs incurred in connection with the judicial or out-of-court settlement of a legal dispute under which title whatsoever they accrue in connection with any illegal reproduction of the borrowed works they have brought about, hence to indemnify and hold harmless the MUG.”
