Be aware of copyright law when photocopying library items. Here are the do's and don'ts to avoid violation of copyright.

  • You shall not copy library items for commercial use; only for academic and research purposes. You may have just a copy, not 2 or more. The copy shall not exceed half of the work.
  • The photocopy machines in library are for photocopying library items only. Do not use them for other items such as notebooks you personally own.
  • In Japan, the duration of the term for copyright protection is the life of the author plus 70 years after their death. In order to copy more than half of the work during the copyright protection period, you are required to get a permission from the copyright holder.
  • As for journals, you may copy a whole article included in an issue. Be aware that you may copy an issue in which a decent period of time has passed after its publication, or the one which is not the latest.

Please contact Copy Service Counter when you need to photocopy library items in bad condition, or those in preservation boxes/bags.

Please report to Copy Service Counter on the first floor in case of photocopy machine troubles. You may also ask them for small change for photocopying.
