Information för bibliotekarier
Villkoren för hur Image Quest får användas innebär att det endast är tillåtet att använda bilder och illustrationer i material som riktar sig till personer inom Lunds universitet (anställd personal och registrerade studenter), men inte i material som riktar sig till personer utanför Lunds universitet. Sådan användning räknas som reklamsammanhang och kommersiellt bruk vilket inte är tillåtet enligt licensvillkoren. Man har däremot möjlighet att be Britannica om tillstånd för extern användning av materialet i Image Quest, det görs genom att man fyller i ett formulär (se länk ovan). Ansökningen görs inte av biblioteket utan av den person som vill använda sig av materialet, eventuell kostnad för användningen betalas av den som ansöker om tillstånd.
