Why can I not use another library's electronic resources?

The terms and conditions of most electronic resources are such that only members of that institution are able to use the resources. Some resources allow external users to access resources on a "walk in" basis whereby you may be able to access the resource from a dedicated PC within that library. In these instances, you would need to contact the library where this resource can be accessed and make arrangements with that library.
