Interlibrary Loan and copyright


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 reproduction. 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.

The UDM Libraries personnel reserves the right to refuse to accept an interlibrary loan request if, in their judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve a violation of copyright law.
