The McGoogan Library of Medicine follows the guidelines of the Medical Library Association 


  1. The instructor will place a notice of copyright on the first page of materials copied from each work.  Suggested verbiage:


  • The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproduction of copyrighted material. The photocopy or reproduction is not to be used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research. These materials are made available for the educational purposes of students enrolled at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. No further reproduction, transmission, or electronic distribution of this material is permitted.


  1. A book chapter or journal article can be copied and placed on print reserve.  Multiple copies may be made to meet the needs of the class.  A good rule of thumb is to provide one copy for every ten students in the class.
  2. A book can be placed on print reserve and checked out to students allowing them to make their own print copies. 
  3. The book placed on reserve does not need to be owned by the Library.  A faculty member’s copy is acceptable.
