A copy of a portion of a book or article for personal research use is typically legal under federal copyright law. If you are an instructor and want to copy or distribute materials for student use, the answer becomes more complicated. See the Library's Copyright and Fair Use guide, and ask one of your Kirkwood librarians for further assistance. We are happy to help you with this.
