Site licence definitions
Single site licence
A single site constitutes one institution or organisation within one geographic location (academic or non-academic) that is under a single administration.
A single site licence provides authorised users at one institutional site with online access to subscribed journals within the BMJ Journals Online Collection. Authorised users include full and part-time employees, staff, independent contractors and students officially affiliated with the institution at the authorised site and persons with legal access to the library using valid IP addresses. Single site licence users are able to download, print and save articles for personal use. It also allows the inclusion of material in course packs and inter-library loan.
