  • An embargo is a period of time during which academic journals are only available from the material’s original publisher or to users who have subscribed to the most recent content from that journal. Embargoes can last anywhere from a week to several years.
  • For University of Calgary students, faculty and staff, it may mean that recent articles may not be available on certain databases that the Library subscribes to. If this is the case, you may request the material through InterLibrary Loan.
