Interlibrary Loan


The Utah State University Merrill-Cazier Library complies with the Copyright Law [Sections 107, 108(g)(2)] and the National Commission on New Technological Uses (CONTU) Guidelines when obtaining copies on interlibrary loan for campus library users.

  • The library only provides materials that will be used for private study, scholarship, or research.
  • The user may be liable for copyright infringement if they violate the "fair use guidelines."
  • The library reserves the right to refuse a request for materials if we believe the request would involve violation of copyright law.
  • The library will not accept requests for copies in quantities that, in purpose or effect, substitute for the subscription or purchase of that material.

The Library uses several providers, such as the Copyright Clearance Center, to legally fulfill as many requests as possible.
