Databases Usage Rules

Gebze Technical University Library has subscribed to a number of electronic sources that have resulted in licensing agreements with publishers and companies. Any violation of the rules in the agreements made may result in the temporary closure of the databases to University and in some cases the agreement may be canceled and the databases may be closed completely to University.
