Copyright Notice

Warning Concerning Copyright Restrictions

The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material.

Libraries are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction under certain conditions. One of these conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." The user is liable for copyright infringement if the reproduction is later used in violation of the "fair use" provision of the law.

The library reserves the right to refuse to accept a request if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
