Copyright Law Compliance

The Klinck Memorial Library adheres to the provisions of the copyright law (Title 17, United States Code) and in good faith follows the law's fair use clauses with regard to providing course reserves and the making of photocopies of materials from its collections for research use. Library staff will not make copies of materials that are intended for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research.

Library users are responsible for complying with the copyright law. The Know Your Copy Rights brochure, prepared by the Association of Research Libraries, is a helpful tool that can be used by Concordia faculty. Use this form for submitting faculty copyright permission requests. 

The Klinck Memorial Library subscribes to electronic journals, ebooks and other databases for use by Concordia University Chicago faculty, students, and staff. The terms and conditions for using these resources are set out in license agreements with each vendor.
