Guidelines for Electronic Reserve
The Library will return requests that exceed photocopying/digital copy limits set forth in the Fair Use Guidelines of the Copyright Revision Act of 1976. Material rejected due to copyright concerns will be returned to you.
The use of electronic reserves material, as with all reserves, is governed by the provisions of fair use of the United States Copyright Act of 1976. Section 107 of the Copyright Act expressly permits the making of multiple copies for classroom use. Based on fair use criteria, library staff will determine if limited portions of an individual work can be scanned or copied for course reserves.
