The Samuel C. Williams Library at Stevens Institute of Technology follows the regulation for fair use established by the copyright law of  the United States (Title 17, United States Code) and reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law. According to fair-use regulations, a copyrighted article that is photocopied or  reproduced may not be used “for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research.” This means that multiple reproductions of a copyrighted article are not allowed for public use (e.g. class handouts) without permission of the copyright holder. Anyone who exceeds fair use of copyrighted material without permission may be liable for copyright infringement.
