Important Copyright Information


The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted materials.

Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement.

The University of Toledo Libraries reserve the right to refuse to accept an ILLiad request if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the request would involve violation of copyright law.

Important Information

  • ILLiad is the system used for requesting, delivering and notifying you that requested materials are available, either for download or pickup.
  • All articles, proceedings papers, or book chapters will be electronically posted to your ILLiad account as PDF files and must be downloaded within 30 days of posting.
  • Books and other physical materials will be checked out on your library record and placed on hold for you at the Carlson or Mulford Library Circulation Desk. Access your library record here (also accessible from the library's homepage).
