WARNING CONCERNING COPYRIGHT RESTRICTIONS
The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material.
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. Our fees for digitization and duplication do not imply an authorization to publish or reproduce it.
I understand the copyright restrictions described above, and agree to abide by them as well as any applicable Policies and Procedures as required by Middlebury College Special Collections. Middlebury College does not necessarily hold the copyright to all items in Special Collections, and I understand it is my responsibility to ensure credit is given to the appropriate parties. I agree to use the appropriate citation guidelines indicated above.
