Warning Concerning Copyright Restrictions

The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, US Codes) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries are authorized to furnish a photocopy or reproduction. One of these specific conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for or uses a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use", that user may be liable for copyright infringement.
