Copyright Information:  
As the providers of published information to the CMSV community, the library faculty seeks to ensure the widest possible access to scholarly material while simultaneously navigating the morass of copyright legislation.  In the absence of legal guidelines or case law, we thus will follow reasonable, self-imposed practices.  We will not allow unrestricted access to copyrighted materials through the library website.  We will not digitize or transmit entire books or journals without appropriate licenses.  We will not disseminate illegally obtained copies of copyrighted works.  We will continue, however, to provide for fair use to the maximum extent possible.

A number of professors have successfully collaborated with the library on digitalization projects. Contact Library Technician, 405.3394 and see how she can help.
 The Library tries to purchase all "required" and "recommended" books listed on faculty syllabi. Required titles are typically placed on reserve. Therefore, please forward ALL syllabi to Library Technician, 405.3394 . New print periodicals are NOT usually ordered because we rely on electronic access to subscription databases. Documentary DVDs and popular feature films are purchased as the budget allows.
