The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, USC) states that libraries are permitted to provide photocopies or other reproductions for specified conditions as long as the material is not to be “used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship or research.” If a patron uses the material in excess of “fair use,” that patron may be liable for copyright infringement. Elms College retains the right to restrict access to material if it feels access to the material would violate copyright law.
