Copying regulations

The Library's photocopying services are offered in accordance with the provisions of the Copyright Act. Explanatory notices are displayed by the photocopiers. Each user has, personally, to comply with the law. Should Library staff suspect that the law may be being broken and, for instance, they notice a student working through a whole book, or copying an unreasonable amount from one volume or journal issue, they can intervene and enquire about the extent of copying. All photocopies made in excess of the limits can be confiscated.

More details are available on our Copyright page.
