Copyright Law & The Library: Introduction

About These Policies

The policy guidelines that follow were arrived at after studying all the materials currently available concerning copyright.  It is the aim of the Library, faculty, and staff to continue to offer the maximum possible service to our patrons, while at the same time remaining within the strict letter of the law.

This policy has been issued to our staff as strict rules and regulations which are not to be violated.  Please be considerate and do not press Library staff to violate their charge.  If you have any questions, comments, or special problems, please consult the Director of Printing/Publications for media-related questions or the Circulation Librarian for Library-related questions.

This document does not in any way attempt to cover the entire copyright law.  It addresses only those portions of the law that pertain to the Library and its services.
