    Notice: Appropriate Usage of Library Resources
    Dear KAUST Library Users:
    Several times over the past six months, the American Chemical Society (ACS) has restricted our access to their publications due to individuals in our community exceeding the download limit.
    What is excessive downloading? The ACS does not publish their threshold, but generally it is systematic downloading that exceeds the number of articles and the speed of download, which you might expect from typical library research.
    It is inconvenient to have campus access to ACS cut off while each infringement is investigated. Library administration has discussed alternate approaches with ACS, but denying access continues to be their practice. Continual violations jeopardize long-term access to this valuable resource.
    It is important for us to abide by the Library’s e-resources usage policy as it takes time to negotiate and recover access with electronic publishers, and loss of access affects everyone in our community. Please click here to read the policy. If you have questions, please contact
