NC LIVE is committed to providing a resource that is accessible for all users, including those with disabilities. All of the pages on our site are Section 508 compliant. In addition, we are working toward conforming with the Priority One checkpoints of the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative. Most Adobe Portable Document Format (.pdf) documents on this site are accessible by screen readers. If not, an HTML alternative is provided. Wherever Microsoft Excel (.xls) and Word (.doc) files are present on this website, there will be an accessible, equivalent version provided.
Our Content Providers
Please note that NC LIVE selects and licenses resources based on the information needs of its users, from a variety of providers whose interfaces may, or may not, fully comply with the W3C and Section 508 guidelines.

NC LIVE provides information resources for library patrons, students, and educators from the four NC LIVE communities of interest. Most of the electronic resources available in the NC LIVE collection are subject to licenses that govern their access and use. In accordance with the fair use provisions of the copyright law, NC LIVE users may search, view, and browse these resources; and may print or download excerpts of reasonable quantity for educational or scholarly purposes. Commercial use and systematic or excessive downloading, copying, or distributing of information are prohibited. Users are individually responsible for compliance with these terms.
Automatic Data Collection
When a visitor requests a page of information from a web site, information about the request is automatically stored in a log file. This information includes the address of the computer making the request (the Internet address, not the street address), the time and date of the request, the type of web browser being used, and sometimes, the page from which the visitor is coming. The information does not contain the visitor's name or e-mail address, since the visitor's browser does not provide this information to the web server. The NC LIVE server site staff analyze these log files to learn about how visitors use the content on the site. This information is used to allocate resources effectively, to provide statistics reports, and ultimately to improve the content of our site.
