Warning concerning copyright restrictions

The copyright law of the united states (title 17. United states code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproduction of copyright material.

Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy is not to 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.This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgement, fulfillment of the law would involve violation of copyright law. For detailed information on copyright via the U.S. Copyright Office powered by the Library of Congress, click here.
