Library licensed resources, such as ejournals, ebooks and database content, cannot be used for commercial purposes, including for co-op work. Beyond this, our licenses also generally prohibit us from sharing these resources with people who are not a student, faculty, or staff member at the University of Waterloo.

If you require access to resources that your employer cannot provide, you might try searching for Open Access content. You can have a look at our Open Access guide to learn more. Browser extensions such as Unpaywall or Open Access Button can help you find legal open access versions of subscription content.
