    Off Campus Access to Electronic Library Resources
    Faculty, staff and students of Tel Aviv University are entitled to off-campus access to the library Internet electronic resources: databases, journals, books and reprints. For instructions on an off-campus connection refer to the library homepage, Off Campus Access.

    Users of the various electronic resources are expected to comply with the copyrights of the various publishers as well as the provisions of the various agreements signed between the publishers, libraries and MALMAD (Israel Center for Digital Information Services).

    Extensive and/or systematic downloading of entire parts of a database and/or any portion of a publication's issue or volume (including by technological devices such as robots) is strictly prohibited, constitutes a violation of intellectual property rights and is in breach of license agreements.

    Textbook Collection Update
    Once a year in May-June the textbook collection is checked and updated for the coming academic year. Updated bibliographic lists for each course should be sent to Stella Gurevich, the librarian in charge of the textbook collection, by e-mail stellag@tauex.tau.ac.il or by the university inner mail.

    Requests for new textbooks or new editions, for scanning articles for courses and for canceling items from the textbook collection should be delivered to Stella Gurevich.

    Books for the textbook collection may also be ordered via the electronic Course Reserves ordering form on the library homepage.

    Once a year announcements on new textbook editions are sent to the lecturers. New editions will be purchased only after lecturer approvals and after updating the students reading lists.
