Copyright Notices on Library Reproductions

Section 108 of the U.S. copyright law allows libraries to reproduce copyrighted works under certain conditions. Section 108(a)(3) also requires that the reproductions include the original item's copyright notice (e.g., © 2006 John Doe) or other appropriate notice.

  • When a copyright notice appears on the first page of the material being copied (e.g. the first page of a journal article or a book chapter), no additional notification of copyright needs to be provided.

  • When copying a chapter from a book in which the chapters do not include a copyright notice, make a copy of the copyright notice from the front of the book.

  • If no copyright notice can be found in the book, then stamp the first page of the material copied with

    NOTICE: This material may be protected by Copyright Law (Title 17, U.S. Code).

  • When copying a journal article in a journal issue or an article in a volume of separately authored essays in which the article/essay does not include a copyright notice, the first page of the material copied will be stamped with

    NOTICE: This material may be protected by Copyright Law (Title 17, U.S. Code).
