The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted materials. 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 or 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. U.S. Copyright Law also prohibits the copying of multiple chapters from a single book, multiple articles from a single journal issue, or an entire work.
We reserve the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in our judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright.
