You can modify the agreement (or have your campus attorneys do so) and return it to the vendor with a request for them to agree to the modified terms.

We refuse to sign any such agreement. If you absolutely must have it, at least register your objection in writing to the vendor; make your dissatisfaction known. They should know they are the outliers. Do they have competition that allows ILL? You might also mention that...

Hello everyone,

As a newer library director who’s been putting together a library from the ground up for the last year, I’m encountering my first license agreement (for a large electronic database) that prohibits using any content for interlibrary loan.

No other agreement I’ve had up to this point had such a prohibition so I’ve not had to address this with a vendor before.  What is the best way to handle this?  We need this resource but I find it unacceptable for the vendor to prohibit use for ILL.

Thank you,
