Copyright restriction

We reserve the right to refuse a copy order if fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.

The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, U.S. Code) governs making photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of the conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction will not 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.


Self-service faxing and scanning is available at all of our branches, free of charge.

  • Faxing to international telephone numbers is not available.
  • You cannot receive faxes at our branches, our machines do not accept fax replies.
  • Scanned documents can be saved directly to either a USB drive or sent to an email address. There is no charge for this service.
