Copyright and ILL

Copyright Restrictions on ILL Requests

  1. Within any calendar year, Westminster College may not request more than FIVE copies from an individual periodical title published in the current and past four years.  After reaching that threshold, the library will then purchase and/or pay the copyright fees for that title.
  2. If a patron requests an interlibrary loan from a periodical to which WC library already subscribes or owns a copy of the source from which they are requesting, it is treated as though the copy is from the library’s own collection under the regular Library Copying Guidelines.
  3. Westminster College maintains records of all borrowing requests to which these guidelines apply.  These records are retained until the end of the third complete calendar year in which the respective requests were made.
  4. According to Title 17, U.S. Code, a copy or reproduction may not be “used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research.”  
  5. Audio-visual material borrowed through interlibrary loan is restricted to personal or classroom use only.
