Digitization of General Collection Materials Policy 

 

The library will digitize collection materials for class use and research if:

 

  • No electronic version exists and;
  • Your request falls within the guidelines of fair use under Section 107 of the Copyright Act.

 

We expect a high volume of requests and will fill those on a first come first serve basis. Due to staffing shortages and the volume of requests, there could be delays in getting materials digitized and delivered.
