Library staff will make every attempt to secure copyright permissions on behalf of the faculty when necessary adhering to Blough-Weis Library Copyright Policy for Reserves.
The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Certain conditions stated in the law, allow libraries and archives to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. A specified condition is that the photocopy or other reproduction not be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement. The library reserves the right to refuse a copying request if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright.
The Library adheres to Guidelines for Copyright Compliance, outlined in the Faculty Handbook, Appendix 7.
