Some Author's Rights Resources


A note from Access Services:
Falvey Memorial Library regularly assists faculty members in placing print copies of copyrighted materials on reserve in the library and placing electronic copies of copyrighted documents on reserve on the instructor's Blackboard course. Library staff may scan and create digital copies directly from library books, library journals, personal books, and other bound materials. No more than 10% of any individual work can be scanned or copied for course reserves. Faculty may pursue copyright permission on their own if greater than 10% of the work will be needed for the course.

In addition to copyright issues related to library reserve items, there may also be copyright compliance issues pertinent to copying or digital conversion of materials in the collection for research or instructional purposes. You may contact Jesse Flavin at 610-519-4274 for copyright questions pertaining to Interlibrary Loan Borrowing or Patricia Kemp at 610-519-3899 for copyright questions about course reserves.

Advice provided by the library in these areas is limited to questions of policy and does not constitute legal advice. The library defers to the Villanova University copyright policy, which can be found by clicking on the first link listed. The library reserves the right to decline service when doing so may infringe copyright law.
