The Long Library Copyright Policy, in compliance with the U.S. Copyright Act of 1976, covers library use for reproductions of materials made for print or electronic reserves.
Materials may include books, photocopied book chapters, a/v materials, journal issues, photocopied journal articles, and electronic resources.
Section 107 of Title 17 of United States Code allows the making of multiple copies for classroom use – a provision for fair use, the text of which follows:
Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include:
(1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;
(2) the nature of the copyrighted work;
(3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
(4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.
The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors.
Long Library follows the outlined principles of Fair Use when placing materials on reserve:
