About This Guide

Welcome to the NWACC Library Copyright LibGuide! This Guide is designed to share information on copyright and related topics. Our goal is to provide examples of best practices, not to interpret copyright law or set NWACC policy or procedures.

This Guide does not supply legal advice nor is it intended to replace the advice of legal counsel.

This guide has been adapted from a guide created by Frannie Gaede at Butler University.

American Library Association Statement on Copyright

....Everyday copyright law affects the way libraries provide information to their users. The first sale doctrine enables libraries to lend books and other resources. Fair use allows for the use of copyrighted works for purposes of criticism, comment, news reporting, scholarship, or research. Libraries are permitted to make reproductions of copyrighted works for preservation and replacement purposes. And under copyright law, libraries can aid in the transformation and reproduction of copyrighted works for users with disabilities. As libraries advocate for user rights and access to information, it's crucial to continue to address the emerging challenges posed at the intersection of technology, society, and law.
