Warning Concerning Copyright Restrictions
The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted materials. Under certain conditions specified by law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be 'used for any purpose other than 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. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order, if in its judgement, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law. (37 C.F.R. 201.14).

Copyright royalty fees will be collected on all applicable materials photocopied by the AIB Information Services / Ruth Emerson Library, with payment to be made to the copyright owner through the Copyright Clearance Center.

At the time of placing a photocopy order, the requestor represents that the request is in full compliance with current copyright laws. The requestor reconfirms and warrants that the request for copies is in full compliance with the copyright laws by receiving the requested materials. The requestor agrees to indemnify and defend AIB information services, the Ruth Emerson Library, its parent organization the American Institute of Baking, and their directors, officers, employees, and agents from any claim (copyright or otherwise) relating in any way to the making of copies requested by the requestor.
