Reading Room Rules and Code of Conduct

Copyright Restriction

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, and later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purpose in excess of “fair use,” that user may be liable for copyright infringement.

The institution reserves the right to refuse a copying order if, in its judgement, fulfillment of the order would violate copyright law.
