A complete bibliographic citation for articles from journals and excerpts from books is needed for Interlibrary Loan staff to request copyright permission from publishers. The Libraries will seek copyright permission for articles and book chapters obtained via Interlibrary Loan. You will be notified if permission is denied and the interlibrary loan request cancelled.

The Copyright Law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) govern the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted materials. Libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction of materials under certain conditions specified in the law. To abide by Copyright Law, only 50 pages or 10% of a work, whichever is less, can be copied and obtained via Interlibrary Loan.

The Library reserves the right to decline requests based on the interpretation of the Copyright Law.
