Articles and Book Chapters

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

This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law."

In order to operate within the guidelines of "fair use" while striving to provide access to research materials, the LLC's copyright policies for article and book chapter requests are as follows:

  • Article: No more than two articles from a single issue of a periodical or journal can be delivered.
  • Book Chapters: No more than two chapters or 15% from a single work (whichever is less) can be delivered.
