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 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. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgement, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.

Finding Graphic Resources You can use material from the Internet for student projects without asking permission….. However, these projects must stay within the school environment (classrooms, open house, conferences, etc.) and not be otherwise distributed—without securing permission from copyright holders. Public domain material may be used without restriction— but be sure the material is in the public domain. Be sure to list your sources ( Staff & students). This is one of the requirements of the Fair Use provisions of copyright law.
