Developed in consultation with University Legal Services.
The Library policy for reserve reading services, paper or electronic, is based upon the fair use provisions of the United States Copyright Act of 1976. All library materials are acquired with the understanding that there will be multiple uses of a limited number of copies. Libraries frequently pay a premium institutional subscription price for the privilege of supporting multiple academic users. The purpose of the Iowa State University Library Reserve System will be to facilitate the making of multiple copies for classroom use by students. The following policies are meant to aid all parties in conforming to fair use provisions of the copyright law.
