Subject: question about license agreements & ILL

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,

Elizabeth Wright
