If your internship project is for the benefit of an organization--whether for profit, non-profit, or governmental--our licenses with database vendors PROHIBITS using their products for this purpose.

Vendors state that these resources are to support the teaching and research activities of current Princeton students and faculty. This in effect means that if your research is for your course work at Princeton, then there is no problem. Otherwise, you would be in violation of the contracts we sign with ProQuest, Ebsco, etc. We have no way of policing anyone's rationale for the research they do, but you need to know this distinction. Basically, the organization that will benefit from your internship project should be providing you access to the resources you need to complete it.
