Text Mining and Library Databases

If you are thinking of basing a research project on data extracted from a library database, contact your subject librarian to discuss issues around permissions (copyright and licensing agreements), formats and fees.

In addition to copyright considerations, we must take into account what the database vendors’ own policies specify in regard to this type of use. When providing access to a database, the library enters into licensing agreements, which also dictate what types of data can be extracted and used.
