Warning Concerning Copyright Restrictions

Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproductions of copyrighted material. 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. The Newberry reserves the right to refuse to accept any copying or reproduction order, in its sole discretion. Users are responsible for securing permission from copyright owners and payment of such additional fees as the owners may require if the Newberry does not own copyright or if the material is not in the public domain. Applicants assume all responsibility for asking and answering questions of copyright and invasion of privacy that may arise in copying and in the use made of the photographic copy or other reproduction. Acceptance of a reproduction request by the Newberry does not mean that the Newberry has made any determination of any copyright or related matters concerning the request. Use of reproductions of Newberry collection items shall be at the user’s sole risk.
