USC Libraries’ licensing agreements with content vendors who supply USC with electronic books, journals, images, and other resources, do not allow the use of robots, spiders, crawlers or other automated downloading programs, algorithms, or devices to continuously and automatically search, scrape, extract, deep link, or index data or metadata.  Those engaging in such activities will be deemed in violation of the University’s agreements and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), and their access to the resources disabled. 

If you are a current USC student, faculty, researcher, or staff working on a scholarly research project which necessitates massive data gathering or content mining, please contact the USC libraries ahead of your project through our Ask-a-Librarian service. For additional information please also check our Content Mining library guide.
