Staff will scan limited portions of copyrighted material in accordance with Seattle University's Guidelines Relating to Classroom Copying:
The Lemieux Library reserves the right to refuse to accept a scan request if, in its judgement, fulfillment of the request would involve violation of copyright law. The library will not scan a complete book or journal issue.
If you request a larger portion of the source material then we can scan, we will refer you to Access Services for borrowing options, including onsite, Contactless, and Borrow and Return by Mail.
|The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, U.S. Code) governs the making of the photocopies or other reproductions of the copyright materials. Under certain conditions specified in the law, library and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than in 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. The Lemieux Library reserves the right to refuse to accept a copy request if, in its judgment, fulfillment of that request would involve violation of copyright law.|

To help us expedite your request:
Scans are 200-300 dpi PDFs in back and white or grayscale. Color images may be possible depending on content. We will scan as legible as possible depending on the condition of the source.

Please email Mary Sepulveda, Coordinator of Collection Development and Special Collections to request a scan of items located in Special Collections and Archives.
