Warning Concerning Copyright Restrictions
The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproductions. One of these special conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be used for any purpose other than private study or any fair use as defined in Section 107 of the U. S. Copyright Law. If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or 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 copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
Responsibility for observance of copyright rests with the applicant and not with Xavier University archives or special.

These materials may not be used for purposes that do not qualify as fair use and they may not be transferred, recopied, exhibited, displayed, broadcast, or published in print or digital form without first obtaining permission from the copyright holder.
