Copyright & Desktop Delivery
The Library has established guidelines for Desktop Delivery based on the copyright law of the United States and practices in other academic libraries. The Library will not scan:
- More than one chapter from a book
- More than one article from a journal issue at your home campus library
- Articles or book chapters that are longer than 60 pages or that constitute too much of a percentage of a total work
Excessive requests and those that appear to violate copyright law will be cancelled at the discretion of library staff. Required readings for courses, materials held in Course Reserves and items available in the Library’s online collections will not be delivered through this service. The article or chapter delivered to you via this service is for personal use. You may not copy or distribute it to others.
