Bulk download documentation

On this page,

What is bulk download?

Manchester eScholar is publicly accessible repository. Where content is supplied with full text and/or supplementary data, these can be freely downloaded. There have been occasions in the past where some service providers have needed to download full text and/or supplementary files en masse, rather than one at a time. This is what we refer to as "bulk download".

Bulk download while supported by Manchester eScholar, is not an automated process. This is a deliberate move on our part so as to maintain our "fair use" policy. So, to avoid degradation of our quality of service to all users, bulk download is managed by us so as to avoid overload of our servers and network.
