Limits on What Can Be Copied

What can be requested?

Any material that can be scanned within the limits of copyright compliance will be provided.

Please note:

The Copyright Law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the Law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproductions. One of these specified 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 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 judgment, fulfillment of that order would involve violation of the law.

Want to Scan It Yourself?

The library has three scanners near the Reference Desk on 2nd floor, and one scanner near the elevators on 3rd floor.
