You can photocopy individual pages of almost anything in the library for research / personal use, but the following are prohibited by the Copyright Act:
(A) Unauthorized copying may not be used to create or to replace or substitute for anthologies, compilations or collective works. A violation of the Copyright Act occurs regardless of whether copies of various works or excerpts there from are accumulated or are reproduced and used separately.
(B) Copying of or from works intended to be “consumable” in the course of study or of teaching is NOT authorized. These include workbooks, exercises, standardized tests and test booklets and answer sheets and like consumable material.
(C) Copying shall not:
- Substitute for the purchase of books, publisher's reprints or journals
- Be directed by higher authority; or
- Be repeated with respect to the same item by the same teacher from term to term. (Marcus vs. Crowley, 695 F. 2d 1171 (9th Cir. 1983))
