Educators, students, public libraries and hospitals that subscribe to
SMART Imagebase through EBSCO Publishing ("Academic Users") may display the Images for classroom teaching and learning purposes; display the Images for academic purposes, such as seminars and lectures; and display the Images on an academic internet or intranet web site that is:
- not accessible by the public, being protected by username and password, and

Upon your acceptance of this Agreement and on each one-year anniversary thereafter for so long as you continue to use any of the Images
