Application to Reproduce Special Collections Materials

Read, Agree to terms, & Submit

The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, U.S. Code) governs the making of reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, library and archives are authorized to furnish or allow the making of a reproduction. One of these conditions is that the 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 reproduction for purposes in excess of “fair use”, that user may be liable for copyright infringement. The Lincoln University Langston Hughes Memorial library has the right to refuse a request for a reproduction if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the request would involve violations of the copyright law.

Lincoln University Langston Hughes Memorial Library, in order to support research and scholarship, will consider requests to reproduce materials from its holdings. Lincoln University Langston Hughes Memorial Library reserves the rights to restrict reproduction and in certain cases to deny requests.
