Document Cameras: Table of Contents

Document Cameras

The library's document cameras provide a quick way to make digital copies of sections of a book. They are ideal for reference titles that can't be checked out of the library.

Document cameras can capture video and still images of anything that you set underneath it. They can be a great educational tool.

Best of all, the document cameras are free to use!

Copyright Compliance

By using the library's document cameras or any copying device, you agree that you will not use the device in any way that infringes upon the rights of the copyright holder. You also acknowledge that it is your own responsibility to make sure that your use of the device does not infringe upon the rights of the copyright holder.

To determine whether your use of the devices qualified as fair use, consult section 107 of the Copyright Act (17 USC 107). Here are some general guidelines to keep in mind:

  • You will make copies for personal academic use only.
  • You will not distribute copies or make copies on behalf of someone else.
  • Your decision to make copies is spontaneous. Your course or instructor did not require you in advance to make the copies.
  • You will copy only the portions of the resource that you need for your personal academic use and not the entire resource.

If you need further clarification, one of the librarians would be glad to assist you.
