Copyright Law

The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of 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 these specified conditions is that the photocopy or other 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.

MCC-Longview Library reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, the fulfillment of the order would involve violation of the copyright law. 

Copyright Guidelines

Please note

Most articles are free; however, copyright fees apply if more than five articles per journal title are received per calendar year for the whole community, not per person. 

Copyright fees also apply if two or more articles are ordered from one single journal. 

You will be notified if there is a fee involved before the article is ordered.
