The library rules.
The 4 important library rules you need to follow to be permitted to use this online library :
1. You can loan the digital file or book for 50 years.
2. After 50 years, you have to erase the book from your electronic storage or re-loan it.
3. You are not allowed to copy the book/datafile, redistribute the datafile or sell the datafile.
That's a copyright violation, since you don't own it.
This is a library, so you are allowed to view any digital file we have.
You're even allowed to download and keep a local copy on your computer for offline reading or fair use.
4.To be 100% safe we let you download a file if it holds no copyright, and if it is copyright protected we only allow you to view it in your browser.
Educational copying does not require the payment of a royalty or the permission of the copyright owners.
So again, if your purpose by downloading anything is research or personal education, well, then the copyright law permits it.
