The Copyright Law of the United States (Title 17, U.S. Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material.
Under certain conditions specified in the copyright law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions states that furnished photocopies or other reproductions are not to be used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research.
This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violations of copyright law. If a user makes a request for, or at a later date, uses a photocopy or other reproduction for purposes contrary to the law, that user may be liable for copyright infringement.
