21.2 Policy for Copy Centers: Copying Copyrighted Materials

  1. Anyone wanting to have copies of copyrighted materials made at campus Copy Centers must complete the requisite form identifying the work to be copied and its intended uses. Faculty are free to have unlimited copies of their own copyrighted work. Otherwise, verification of permission is required or limited copies will be made for research and classroom use in accordance with the "Agreement on Guidelines for Classroom Copying in Not-For-Profit Educational Institutions with Respect to Books and Periodicals."
  2. The Copy Centers will make copies for customers certifying that the work(s) to be copied falls within the "fair use" exception to the 1976 Copyright Act. The relevant forms must be signed by the faculty, staff, or student for whom copies are being made, prior to the Copy Centers making any copies of documents.
  3. Anthologies (compilations of printed materials from books and articles from periodicals) that may be used as a course text and/or course packets must go through a copyright clearance center process, either through the UPAC copyright service at the IMU Book Store (see also VI-19 Educational Materials [Textbooks] for Classroom Use), or through similar services outside the University prior to being reproduced.
