Requests & Copyright Restrictions

We follow the CONTU Guidelines, meaning copyright charges go into effect after five article requests from a single journal or book published within the last five years. After that, the library is charged a copyright fee for each request. The amount varies by publisher and title.

ILL requests received after the yearly limit is reached will be covered up to $50. If an item is over $50 in copyright fees, an email will be sent to the patron asking if they are willing to cover the cost of the item. If not, the request will be canceled.
