Warning Concerning Copyright Restrictions:

The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, U.S. 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 other 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 other reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use", that user may be liable for copyright infringement.

This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a reproduction order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of that order would involve violation of copyright law.

These conditions are approved and agreed to by the applicant when s/he submits this electronic form to the Missouri Valley Special Collections department of the Kansas City Public Library.
