Title 17, United States Code, governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material.  Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries are authorized to produce a photocopy or other reproduction.  One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or other reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research."  If a customer makes a request, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that customer may be liable for copyright infringement.
