Due to copyright restrictions, the Library will not scan more than is educationally necessary. We use 20% of the total work as a loose guideline, up to a maximum of 75 pages:
The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, U.S. Code) governs the making of the photocopies or other reproductions of the copyright materials. Under certain conditions specified in the law, library and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than in 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. The Utah Valley University Library reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order, if, in its judgment fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
In addition, staff will not copy material placed on course reserve. Staff will process one chapter or article per request. Please submit requests for two articles or two chapters on separate requests.
