How do I know if a resource is licensed by the Learning Centre or not?

The most definite information can be found from systems maintained by the Learning Centre:

The Learning Centre has acquired from some service providers only a portion of their resource entities. Even if sometimes the Learning Centre logo appears on a website of a service provider, it does not mean that we have acquired all resources from the collections of the provider in question. In some services there simply is not a way to distinguish which resources are acquired or not by the Learning Centre.

If you are not sure, if the Learning Centre has acquired some material or not, please check it via the systems mentioned above.

If you notice any inconsistencies in the availability information of any resource, please contact the email address mentioned above.
