Library Databases and Internships – What to know

The Business & Management Librarian Team receives inquiries from students participating in internships or other experiential learning projects about using library databases over the summer.  However, our licensing agreements with our partner vendors include restrictions on how and when our library resources may be used. Yale affiliates are responsible for ensuring that their use complies with the publishers’ license agreements with Yale University.  

Please refer to our guidance on E-Resources Access and Use and Appropriate Database Use for Internships and Other Non-Academic Experiences for more information. 

Librarians will be available over the summer to answer your questions, discuss search strategies, and recommend resources – please don’t hesitate to contact us!
